Christmas Markets in Austria

2095Advent at Lake Woerthersee
The most atmospheric Christmas market in the South of Austria will open on 27 November 2015 at Woerthersee and it’s worth while going there for a whole weekend. Velden am Woerthersee becomes a city of angels during Advent and  the Christmas market held in Klagenfurt enjoys a reputation as a stage for regional folk heritage.

The Hirschalm Advent opens on 28 November every weekend until Christmas. This is the right place to set the stage for Christmas away from the hustle and bustle. On a walk through the woods you will visit the reindeer and a Lapp hut with an open fireplace, meet the Christmas dwarfs or feed the deer. The highlight is a ride by horse-drawn sleigh or skidoo. Connect the fairytale Advent with a cottage holiday in one of the log cabins.
Location: Unterweißenbach
