Abtenau Advent in the mountains

The fifth season in the mountains of Abtenau in Tennengau

Advent in Abtenau with its rural Christmas market and the Advent markets are a special highlight in Tennengau in the contemplative pre-Christmas period in Salzburg.

Unfortunately, the Advent market in Abtenau is canceled this winter 2021. Nonetheless, the market square will shine again in Advent splendor. The Advent huts are adorned with a wide variety of works of art, self-made things, nativity scenes, Perchten masks and much more. The Advent show market can be visited from the first weekend in Advent.

We look forward to the next Advent 2022 with all its events and customs:

With the "Advent in the Mountains" and the atmospheric afternoon “It's Advent again” the Advent season opens with music. Traditionally on December 5th, the Krampus move into the market square with their Santa Claus. Christmas markets offer handicrafts, monastery work, pottery products and delicacies at beautifully decorated wooden stalls. The nativity scenes of the local artists can 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!
