Christmas Markets in Salzburg
Salzburg is home to a charming Christmas Market in the Cathedral Square underneath the imposing Hohensalzburg Fortress. Dating from the 15th century it is one of the oldest Christmas markets in Europe and also one of the most beautiful.
At Salzburg's charming Christmas Markets you will find traditional craftsmanship, delicious Christmas sweets and baked goods, tree ornaments and numerous seasonal trinkets and goodies. There are performances by traditional Salzburg choirs and children's groups as well as brass concerts.
You can also expect a visit from the 'Christkind' - a white clad figure accompanied by angels - and from the 'Krampus' - a character who punishes naughty children at Christmas.
