Abtenau Advent in the mountains

The fifth season in the mountains of Abtenau in Tennengau

The Advent in Abtenau with its rural Christmas market and the Advent markets are a special highlight in the Tennengau in the contemplative pre-Christmas period in Salzburg. Fragrant Christmas baked goods, handmade works of art, Christmas decorations, Christmas tree decorations and culinary delicacies are offered at the idyllic Advent market. Various Advent concerts also invite you to feel the pre-Christmas mood and the quiet time of the year up close.

We look forward to Advent with all its events and customs:

With the  "Advent in the Mountains"  the Advent season is opened with music and at the first "Abtenau Christmas Roas around the Arlerhof" experience an atmospheric evening with many special features.

Traditionally, on December 5th, the Krampuses and their St. Nicholas arrive at the market square. Christmas markets offer handicrafts, monastic works, pottery products and delicacies at beautifully decorated wooden stalls. The nativity scenes by local artists can also be admired, as well as a life-size "wooden nativity scene". 

In the Christkindl post office, lovely angels help the children formulate and write their wish lists. The letters are sealed with a seal and forwarded to the Christ Child. The Abtenau tower blowers provide the background music for the mountain advent. Horse-drawn carriages wait for visitors along the market square to be able to whisk them off into the magnificent winter landscape.

This is considered a special highlight every year Abtenau Advent Singing in the parish church of Abtenau. In the heart of the Salzburg mountains, choirs and folk musicians resound in a pre-Christmas symphony. A real feast for the senses: the beautifully decorated parish church, the contemplative scent of incense and the Christmas sounds of various musicians.

Let yourself be infected by the pre-Christmas atmosphere and enjoy the Advent season in Abtenau!
