In Salzburg, there are many beautiful Christmas markets, each with its unique charm. For Christmas, Christmas markets are an integral part that makes the long wait for the most beautiful celebrations of the year more enjoyable and brings a small taste of the festive atmosphere. Allow yourself to be invited to Salzburg, a city nestled among the Alpine peaks, where you can savor the “Christmas preparations” to the fullest.
Although Salzburg has its unique charm throughout the year, during the Advent season, when lights are shining everywhere, and various decorations are hung, it becomes a bit more enchanting. The picturesque narrow streets, combined with the Christmas atmosphere, make you look at the world with childlike eyes for a while. Where to go here?
Fairytale Christkind Markt
A stay in Christmas Salzburg would not be complete without a visit to the main Advent market, Christkind Markt, located on the adjacent squares of Domplatz and Residenzplatz. Historical sources claim that markets were held on Domplatz as early as the 17th century, and in 2001, those on Residenzplatz were added. Life still thrives on both squares, with approximately 100 stalls prepared each year, offering not only plenty to see but, most importantly, where to spend.
