Salzburg in December

The most romantic time of the year

The Salzburg’s Christmas Market is one of Europe’s largest Christmas markets. As well as the well-known Salzburg’s Christmas Market, there is a number of smaller, romantic Christmas markets to explore in Salzburg. Get into the Christmas spirit as you stroll with us through the twinkling streets of Salzburg in December.

The Salzburg’s Christmas Market stretches from “Residenzplatz” to “Domplatz”. You can almost smell the lebkuchen already! Enjoy Advent by tucking into delicious roasted almonds and warming mulled wine. As well as traditional crafts and the finest Christmas baked goods, Salzburg’s Christmas Market is sure to enchant you with its unique ambience. Countless visitors from all around the world gather here to get into the Christmas spirit.

The Christmas Market in Hellbrunn

& the Christmas market at Mirabellplatz

Hellbrunn Palace is located just outside the city. From Hellbrunn’s car park, a torch-lit path leads to the castle, which turns into a huge Advent calendar during December. You can reach the Christmas market in Hellbrunn in just 10 to 15 minutes by car or bus.

If you cross the Salzach while visiting the Christmas Market, you’ll reach Schoss Mirabell Palace. Between the palace and the Gothic St Andrew’s Church, you’ll find the small but charming Christmas Market on “Mirabellplatz”.

Atmospheric Christmas Markets in Salzburg

Salzburg’s highest Christmas market can be found in the castle’s Medieval courtyard.

Salzburg’s highest Christmas market can be found in Hohensalzburg Castle’s Medieval courtyard. Whether you take the funicular or tackle the ascent on foot – the trip up to the castle has plenty of rewards. From the top, you’ll not only be able to drink in unique views of Salzburg’s snow-covered rooftops, but also combine your visit to the romantic Christmas market with a cosy, wintry stroll along the Mönchsberg. There is a path that leads directly from the Altstadthotel Kasererbräu to the Festungsberg mountain. And if your walk leaves you with cold feet, you can head to the hotel’s wellness area to warm up.
