Advent (Christmas) Market

“Advent as then”

Radiating far across Lake Wolfgangsee through the dark winter nights, the inviting, peaceful glow of the lantern draws guests from near and far to contemplate in, wonder at and enjoy the Lake Wolfgang Advent (Christmas) Market.

There is a joyful anticipation of Christmas in the air and visitors are able to experience fascinating customs still in practice today. The Lake Wolfgangsee Advent (Christmas) Market is celebrated in St. Gilgen, Strobl and St. Wolfgang annually and this year is no exception.

In the village of St. Wolfgang candles, torchlight and warming braziers lend a cosy atmosphere and the solid, rustically-decorated Market stalls meander from the Postplatz Square to the lakeside, whilst in the Mozart village of St. Gilgen the visitor can expect a baroque backdrop to the Advent scene. A joi de vivre and a joyful anticipation of Christmas are depicted on the Market stall facades – designed by artist Raja Schwahn-Reichmann. The idyllic village of Strobl, however, is romantically transformed into something very special – featuring exquisite Nativity-scenes.
