Steyr, Oberösterreich , Österreich

Steep yourself in the atmosphere of bygone centuries and enjoy a taste of modern-day life at one and the same time in the Christkindl Town of Steyr!

Experience the outstanding pre-Christmas ambiance in Steyr that has one of the most beautiful downtown squares in Europe, where Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo meet each other in harmony. This is exactly the place where "Christkindl" is at home!

Among the very special highlights rank the town's "Christmas Crib Trail", featuring the most beautiful nativity scenes within the entire region, and the special pre-Christmas performances at the Steyrer Kripperl building, the oldest German-language Puppet Theater.

At Austria's First Christmas Museum the big and the little ones will be enchanted by the truly outstanding Advent Exhibition boasting an infinite number of Christmas decorations, hand-carved figures and little presents.

The mighty Lamberg Castle towers high above Steyr on the foundations of the Styraburg. The very castle to which the town owes its founding. Steyr is a town with a thousand years of history. A town made for promenades along the impressive main street, leafy avenues or the crystal clear river itself (inspiration for Schubert´s Trout Quintet), Steyr´s location also allows for a wealth of interesting excursions.
