Dating back to 1491 this Christmas market in Salzburg is one of the oldest in Europe. With its fortress towering high over the city and the cathedral in the background, the market stalls dot the romantic square. Add to that live concerts, dance, and stunning nativity sets and you will experience Salzburg at its most enchanting time.
More than 100 illuminated Moravian stars flood the castle grounds and courtyard with festive light. This Christmas market in Salzburg is not only its highest but also great fun for the whole family. Whilst the parents can sip mulled wine, the children can bake, under supervision cookies or create Christmas cards.
Just a few minutes walk away from the train station and with Mirabell Palace as its gorgeous backdrop, this small Christmas market captives the season's spirit perfectly. As it is fitting for such a musical town like Salzburg, concerts are part of the entertaining program. Apart from seasonal delicatessen like bake apples, you find here also a wide selection of handcrafted gifts like hand-painted Christmas baubles.
