the Romantic Advent Village

St. Wolfgang

Awaiting the Christ child.


Giant Advent gates are the entryway onto the lantern-lit road with its Christmas trees, candles and metre-high flaming torches.


If you are approaching from across the lake, the huge, floating light of peace lantern will amaze you.

 

All booths

The Christ child is eagerly awaited here and fascinating living traditions encourage visitors to while away their time. The many things going on, together with the singing angels of Lake Wolfgangsee, all help bring about the Christmas spirit.


The Advent market is open from Monday through to Friday. “Twilight in the village”. On Wednesdays the Advent festivities in St. Wolfgang are held by candle light, and only by candle light.  All electric lights in the Advent market are extinguished, and all the shops and businesses are illuminated by lanterns. Watch master craftsmen and women at work making vintage handicrafts.


The lavish selection on offer in this “real” Advent market includes exquisite handicrafts and local specialities as well as wonderful Christmas tree decorations. 

In the Angel Post Office children can write down their Christmas wishes and send them off.


Also, whether big or small, simply stand and gaze in wonder at the unique nativity scene in the vicarage garden with its life sized Salzkammergut figures.
