Advent at Wolfgangsee

The contemplative run-up to Christmas

Candle light and glistening children’s eyes. Experience Wolfgangsee’s inspiring Advent at one of the loveliest Advent markets in Austria. On dark winter nights the peace light lantern spreads its light far beyond Wolfgangsee, inviting you to pause for thought.

Advent market in St. Wolfgang

a romantic experience

Visitors enter the idyllic Advent market through one of the two giant Advent gateways. The lantern street, which takes you to the Christmas market at Wolfgangsee, has hundreds of festively decorated fir trees, and burning torches and metre-high lanterns are also lit to create a romantic festive ambience.

Traditional crafts, customs and a contemplative, atmospheric ambience create a that long forgotten feeling of anticipation and comfort.

Wolfgangsee Advent

Three places – one train of thought

Experience a Baroque Advent in St. Gilgen with stalls bedecked with elements of Baroque style, showing Advent scenes. An eleven metre candle reveals the way on the path in the town of St. Gilgen. Strobl reveals itself as a romantic crib village – a shepherd's path leads the way to the Advent gate and cribs in various guises are encountered on the route. A tapestry of sound, with genuine popular music from the region, provides a special ambience. St. Wolfgang is wholly committed to imparting the romance of Advent – with an atmospheric path consisting of fir trees, candles and torches. The huge peace light at the lake is both emblem and allegory.
