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.
Christmas markets are permitted to open and will provide a preventive strategy that is tailored to the local conditions for this purpose. The strategy will then include plans for regulating the number of visitors, for example. Sufficient distances between the booths must also be ensured along with health and safety measures for those running the booths, employees and guests (such as making disinfectant dispensers available).
