St Wolfgang Christmas Market

Enjoy Austrian Christmas and visit the beautiful Austrian Christmas Markets

Advent on Lake Wolfgang

Advent is celebrated in style every year at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl on Lake Wolfgang. The Wolfgangsee Christmas Market is one of the most beautiful in the country.

Treat yourself to a little pre-Christmas break and enjoy some peace and quiet before Christmas at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl by Lake Wolfgang. Right from the first snowfall, the cosy and elegant rooms and suites at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl are the ideal place to contemplate Christmas presents for your loved ones. Get in the Christmas spirit right away in the romantic town of St. Wolfgang. The little town on the lake is the setting for a very special Advent market. Advent on Lake Wolfgang is regarded as one of Austria's most beautiful Christmas markets. You won't find any trinkets or tat, but instead traditional crafts. Enjoy ambling through a Christmas market where Austrian Christmas Traditions are alive and flourishing.

Lake Wolfgang Advent 2024

All the villages in the Salzkammergut are decorated for Christmas by the end of November. Everything sparkles and glitters wherever you look. The three atmospheric Christmas markets of St. Wolfgang, Strobl and St. Gilgen am See are connected by the tranquil Lake Wolfgang and can be reached by boat.

Mulled wine and punch get you in the Austrian Christmas spirit, while the hot chestnuts, gingerbread and baked apples on offer at the small stalls entice you with their Christmassy aroma.

Chestnuts, punch and baked apples: The St. Wolfgang Chrismas Market 2024

Ever visited the St. Wolfgang Christmas Market? No? Then it's about time you did! The unique Advent market on Lake Wolfgang doesn't just get kids excited.

A visit to the Christmas market in St. Wolfgang gets even the biggest Scrooges into the Christmas spirit. At Advent, Lake Wolfgang transports you to a bygone age. All three Lake Wolfgang Advent villages exude the unique charm of this most wonderful time of the year.

St. Wolfgang Christmas Market

Experience Advent up-close. Each Lake Wolfgang Advent village has its own individual theme: The Baroque St. Gilgen Christmas Market stands out thanks to its Advent forest of carved bark trees. In Strobl, the Nativity Village gives the Advent market a special charm; and in St. Wolfgang, you can admire the floating lantern on the lake right outside the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl.

The villages, decorated for Advent, help create an atmospheric and enchanting atmosphere. At the Christmas or Christkindl market, you can pick up gifts large or small, made by local craftsmen. You're guaranteed an incredible Advent during your Austrian Christmas holiday at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl, which lies just a few steps away from the Christmas market by Lake Wolfgang
