What would a Christmas vacation in Salzburg be without a visit to the internationally renowned Salzburg Christmas Market? How good that the Hotel & Gasthof Hölle is only a few minutes away from Salzburg's old town and the Christmas market by public transport.

Salzburg's historic Christmas market

Enjoy the magical atmosphere around Salzburg Cathedral with delicious mulled wine, punch or a hearty Bosna. With around 100 stalls, you can quickly pick up a few Christmas presents. If you are out and about with the family, you can wait for a visit from the Christ Child: Every Sunday in Advent and therefore just before Christmas, the Salzburg Christ Child visits the Christmas market in the afternoon and hands out sweets to the children. And at Mozartplatz you can do a few laps on the ice rink before heading back to the hotel.

Hellbrunn Adventzauber

The Hellbrunn Adventzauber in the grounds of Hellbrunn Palace is particularly fun for children. With a fairytale scavenger hunt, Christmas train, wild animals etc., the wait for the Christ Child can be made particularly exciting.

Sternadvent away from the Getreidegasse

Those who prefer a quieter atmosphere can visit the Sternadvent in Salzburg's old town. With a living nativity scene, cozy stalls and appropriate music, it's the perfect way to get in the mood for the upcoming Christmas celebrations.

Christmas Eve in Salzburg: Christmas shooting & Christmas masses in the churches

When the Festungsprangerstutzenschützen (fortress marksmen) begin their Christmas shooting from the Fortress of Festung Hohensalzburg and the chimes ring out "Silent Night, Holy Night" afterwards, then it's Christmas in Salzburg. During an afternoon mass in Salzburg's churches, so-called nativity celebrations are held especially for families. But there are also numerous nightly Christmas masses, for example in the Salzburger Cathedral, which bring Christmas Eve to a festive close after the gift-giving.

Winter peace before the festive season on winter hikes & ski tours in Salzburger Land

During the Christmas period in Salzburg, you can experience special peace and contemplation on a winter hike or on a ski tour in the surrounding Salzburger Land region. How about a winter hike to Salzburg's local mountain, the Gaisberg? But the Zwölferhorn also offers a fabulous winter hiking trail, along with many others. The Wieserhörndl and the Schlenken are perfect for leisurely ski tours before the gourmet Christmas festivities begin.

Enjoyable & blissful Christmas Eve at Hotel & Gasthof Hölle

There you can toast to the upcoming Christmas celebrations in the bar with a glass of sparkling wine or an aperitif before heading to the festive Christmas dinner in the restaurant. Then it's time for the presents in your cozy yet modern room. Afterwards, fall asleep in your cozy beds and dream of the upcoming Christmas holidays in the magical city of Salzburg.
