ADVENT IN THE MOUNTAINS OF SALZBURG
Christmas markets and skiing in the Hochkönig region
You will truly get into the Christmas spirit on the Hochkönig.
For many of us, the Christmas carol Silent Night is so natural that one does not give it a further thought: it is simply a part of Christmas. Very few know that this famous song has its roots in SalzburgerLand.
The Christmas market with small wooden stands is festive and accompanied by the seasonal sounds of alphorns and wind ensembles. In the Maria Alm Pilgrimage Church, you can listen to Advent concerts and marvel at the beautiful, glistening lights. On the weekends, nativity scenes and exquisite handcrafts are on display.
Up here at the ski huts, you can get into the Christmas spirit with skiing, regional cuisine, traditional Christmas music, and a festive Advent atmosphere.
