Spend the Most Wonderful Time of the Year in the Mountains

Experience a peaceful Advent in the Grossarl Valley

Those looking for an idyllic, pre-Christmas holiday need look no further… the Grossarl Valley is the place to be! At this really special time of year, you will experience a plethora of Alpine culture and traditions dating back hundreds of years and celebrate Advent in the mountains just as the people in the Salzburg region do. The charming ambience of the Grossarl Christmas market, where you can enjoy quiet and sophisticated conversation, awaits you. Meander between the decorated stalls and savour the numerous culinary delights on offer.
There's also a great deal to keep the children entertained – they can bake biscuits in the children's bakery or post their wishlists to Santa Claus at the Christmas Post Office. Alongside the tranquil Christmas market, there are also other traditional activities, such as the Krampuslauf, an Austrian tradition in which revellers dress up as Krampus, a horned beast which punishes naughty children at Christmas, and walk through the town; the carol services and the nativity plays. Enjoy an unforgettable pre-Christmas holiday in the Grossarl Valley and join in with the celebrations with us!
