Christmas Markets are Back in SalzburgerLand, Austria

SALZBURGERLAND, Austria - Oct. 17, 2022 - PRLog -- Advent, a magical time in Austria's SalzburgerLand, starts mid November and runs to Christmas Eve. The country's Christmas markets tradition began in Salzburg in the 15th Century when the Tandlmarkt set up in Cathedral Square to sell produce and gifts to locals. Running for two weeks either side of St Nicholas's Day, it became Nikolaimarkt, and more recently the Salzburg Christkindlmarkt, which fills the entire square with 100 artisan stalls.

Salzburg City's Advent Time package runs from 25 Nov to 13 Dec: prices from €271 per person include 2 nights' 4* accommodation (2 sharing B&B mid-week - or from €302 weekends), include an advent concert ticket and Christkindlpass (6 vouchers worth €25 to spend at Christkindlmarkt). A 5* hotel package on the same basis is from €364 mid-week and €516 (weekends). Reservations here (

In addition to Christkindlmarkt and a variety of pop-ups, the city's favourite fixtures include Mirabell Platz, the Hohensalzburg Fortress, the Stern brewery and Hellbrunn Palace. For an authentic Alpine experience drive to any of the villages surrounding the city where each has its own affair.

Time a visit to coincide with St Nicholas's Day (6 Dec) and witness the crazy Krampus: wild spirits that roam the streets in shaggy costumes and elaborate masks warning kids to behave if they want a present from Father Christmas.
