Welcome to Mountains, Lakes & Culture
Advent in the Ausseerland - Salzkammergut
Alpine traditions have developed over many centuries und have always been closely connected to the calendar year.
The rural and crafts population had many folklores and traditions. They were marked by superstition, belief, and religion and thus closely connected to ecclesiastical festivals.
In our region „Ausseerland“ the calm and serene period before Christmas is celebrated with contemplative events including traditional theatrics around the religious figure St. Nicholas, the so-called “Nikolospiele”. Beautiful, original Christmas markets offer an enjoyable atmosphere, which let increase our pleasant anticipation for the Christmas Eve to come.
