Advent time in Austria is the time for reflection, love and giving. Traditional preparations for the Festival of Love take place at the Advent markets in St. Wolfgang, Strobl and St. Gilgen: probably the most enchanting Christmas markets in Austria.

Be greeted by the floating lantern on Lake Wolfgang: a light dedicated to peace. The three villages of the Lake Wolfgang Advent: St. Gilgen, Strobl and St. Wolfgang all evoke a special wintry magic and atmosphere during pre-Christmas preparations in Austria.

Stroll through the narrow streets of St. Wolfgang looking at the artfully crafted mostly hand made goods and regional Austrian produce. There are lovingly decorated gingerbread cookies, bees wax candles, handmade soaps, hand carved Austrian cribs and nativity scenes that are on display in the cute little alpine huts scattered around St. Wolfgang.

St. Wolfgang, Strobl, and St. Gilgen: Christmas markets in Austria

Learn the true story behind St. Nicolas and the Austrian “Krampus” during a traditional “Krampus run”. Try some hot Austrian mulled wine and roasted chestnuts and warm yourself at the open fires scattered throughout the markets. Taste Austrian tidbits and regional delicacies and be inspired by the charms of the Christmas markets in Austria.

By the way: the Advent markets in the Salzkammergut around Lake Wolfgang, in St. Wolfgang, Strobl and St. Gilgen are connected by the Lake Wolfgang boats: hop on the ferry and visit each village on a different day. The magical views across the lake, especially when it is getting dark and the lights come on, will bring memories everlasting.
