Salzburg Christmas markets

Festive illuminations and an inimitable atmosphere ensure that a visit to the Christmas markets is a warm and heartfelt experience.

    Salzburg Christmas Market in front of the Cathedral and the Residenz

    From 21 November to 26 December 2019 you are invited to enjoy a snack and a glass of mulled wine at the famous Advent market. Here you can experience the true atmosphere of Advent: angelic choir singing, traditional fanfares from the towers, child-friendly “Perchten” processions and contemplative Christmas readings.

    Advent market in the Fortress Hohensalzburg

    On every weekend in Advent, the Herrnhut stars bathe the landmark of the city of Salzburg in a sea of lights. A children’s workshop and the Stefani Perchten are the special highlights at Fortress Hohensalzburg, which neither young nor old should miss.

    The magic of Advent in Hellbrunn

    The Advent market at Hellbrunn Palace makes little hearts beat faster. A Christmas train, pony rides, a Punch and Judy show and Hellbrunn Christmas angels await them. The Salzburg Market leaves nothing to be desired from 21 November to 24 December 2019.
