The magic of the Christmas season

Christmas is a time for peace and reflection, and our Advent markets are the very essence of the season with their fragrant treats and authentic handicrafts. Our traditions and customs around Christmas and the turn of the year are a deeply-rooted part of us, from building cradles to the bright lights of the Glöcklerlauf processions, from the Waldweihnacht festivities in the snowy forest to the Schlösser Advent celebration, and from visiting the Christ Child at Steyrer Christkindl to making candles at Linzer Kerzenziehen.
