A Christmas market that will make the kids‘ eyes sparkle– and yours too!

Fragrant “Vanillekipferl” (vanilla crescent cookies – a traditional Christmas cookie here), “Bauernkrapfen“ (“farmer’s doughnuts”) and the region’s strong, warming winter drinks like mulled wine, Christmas punch and “Jägertee” (Hunter’s Tea) are not to be missed. The Advent market delights visitors of all ages with lovingly designed market stalls, extraordinary decorations and a wonderfully festive atmosphere. And with her singing interludes, Dana adds a very special flair as well.
