It's Advent again

“Every year again…”
is “Advent in the mountains”.  Salzburg country and in the nearby one Mozart city of Salzburg  A special experience.
Escape the pre-Christmas stress and enjoy the quietest and most contemplative time of the year Abtenau in the idyllic Lammertal.
The magical landscape of the wintry mountains, snow-covered meadows and forests, glittering snowflakes falling very quietly from the sky - a magical atmosphere full of peace and beauty spreads against the impressive backdrop of the Dachstein and Tennen Mountains.
It's already very Christmassy around Abtenau. Villages and towns decorate themselves in pre-Christmas splendor. Loving house decorations, bright Christmas lights and traditional events create an unforgettable ambience.

Christmas scents of hot mulled wine and spicy gingerbread are in the air, candlelight and torchlight create a homely atmosphere, Christmas tree baubles compete with children's eyes, plus the contemplative tunes of a brass band. In what is otherwise a hectic time, this gives you tranquility and peace.
While the hustle and bustle in the cities determines what happens during Advent, in Salzburger Land you can switch off and reflect on the true values.

romantic hours
in the Salzburg old town   Advent is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful times in the city of Salzburg. When the first snowflakes fall from the sky, the children build snowmen in the Mirabell Gardens and the smell of mulled wine wafts through the streets, even hard-boiled contemporaries become real romantics.

A walk over Salzburg's city mountains offers an overwhelming view of the city's snow-covered roofs, domes and towers. The sound of the many church bells reminds us of the approaching Christmas. Descending back into the city, the cheerful hustle and bustle of the Salzburg Christmas market spreads a pleasant warmth and awakens long-forgotten childhood memories. The smell of punch and roasted almonds, of hot chestnuts and fresh baked apples is in the air.



Gingerbread hearts, nativity figures, Christmas tree decorations, toys and hand-knitted socks made from sheep's wool tempt you to buy them!
People are in a pre-Christmas mood. Experience the Salzburg Christmas market on a horse-drawn carriage ride through the old town and capture impressions that you won't forget for a long time!

The Calendar of Events full of offers of contemplative hours, traditions and customs - the “quiet time of the year” enchants guests and locals alike every year.
