What Advent season in Salzburg has in store

There’s nothing like a quiet time to pause for a moment, to reflect, to get ready for pre-Christmas splendour after a hectic year. Advent season in Salzburg impresses with a wide variety of traditional events and modern magic in a picturesque setting. Are you spending Advent 2018 in Salzburg? Here are some exclusive GMACHL recommendations for your visit to the city of Mozart.


The Christmas markets

Hardly any other city has such a high density of Christmas markets as Salzburg – and all of them are of extraordinary beauty and idyllic scenery. Two places are particularly dear to us:

  • Dom- and Residenzplatz (Cathedral Square) hosts what is perhaps the region’s largest and most famous Christmas market. It has stood for genuine pre-Christmas magic for 525 years now, with around 100 exhibitors with all sorts of culinary delights and homemade souvenirs.
  • Hellbrunn Advent Magic in the city’s south it just that: magic. 400 Christmas trees, 13,000 red baubles, an eight-metre-large angel and 24 windows on the colossal palace façade Advent calendar won’t just have kids’ eyes shining brightly.

Our tip: GMACHL guests enjoy mulled wine and chestnuts at our roofed in-house Advent stall – a great idea for company Christmas parties on enquiry!


The Advent concerts

It goes without saying that Advent in Salzburg would be nothing without musical events. Atmospheric performances featuring classical music, traditional Christmas carols and religious sounds take place every day. We recommend:

  • Atmospheric Fortress Concerts from 29 November to 23 December are dedicated to the sounds of Mozart and his contemporaries. Enjoy the view of the city and its surroundings, optionally accompanied by a gala dinner, in a historic ambiance.
  • Salzburg Advent Singing at Grosses Festspielhaus is one of the city’s pre-Christmas institutions. Befitting the anniversary year 200 Years "Silent Night! Holy Night!", everything is about the famous carol from 30 November to 16 December.

That’s only a mere taste of everything Advent season in Salzburg has to offer. The city of Mozart gets you in the Christmas spirit with everything from more Silent Night anniversary events to exciting exhibitions and performances – and you as a GMACHL guests are right in the middle of it! We will gladly compile a non-binding offer for you.
