Christmas Markets in Salzburg
Advent in the Salzkammergut Region
In the Salzkammergut Advent is a particularly wonderful time of year: The snow-covered mountain ranges and the dark, shiny lakes provide a romantic setting for magical Christmas markets. The smell of mulled wine, roasted chestnuts and Christmas spices fill the air throughout the Salzkammergut and the twinkling festive lights are reflected in the mystic waters of the lakes. Lake Fuschl in Salzburg County is a place to retreat to, to get away from the hustle and bustle and pre-Christmas stress and the Garden Hotel Sonnleitn is an oasis of tranquillity and homely well-being.
The Christmas markets in Salzburg and in the villages dotted along the shores of Lake Wolfgangsee are among the most beautiful in Austria. Enjoy the unique atmosphere in St. Gilgen for example, just a few minutes' drive from the hotel, or take a boat ride past the giant floating candle to the Christmas market in St. Wolfgang. The world famous Salzburg Christmas Market in front of the cathedral is well worth a visit in the evening when the atmosphere is particularly enchanting. At the Garden Hotel Sonnleitn near Salzburg City Advent is a particularly lovely time of year: you can relax in front of the crackling open fire, taste the delicious homemade Christmas biscuits and enjoy relaxing hours of pleasure in our spacious sauna. Enjoy the Christmas markets in and around Salzburg City during Advent.
