Stern Advent and Winter Market
Hidden away between the Getreidegasse and Griesgasse, in the lovingly decorated Stern Arcades outside of the Sternbräu itself, is an atmospheric Advent market with a living Nativity scene, designer products as well as authentic arts & crafts.
With the opening of the completely remodeled Sternbräu in 2014, the inner courtyard of this renowned eatery also acquired a new look. During Advent, the summery beer garden is transformed into a romantic village of huts: The many stands, fragrant with the smell of freshly cut wood, whisk you away into a whole new world, though you are still very much in the heart of Salzburg’s historical district.
As a “Winter Market” until early January
One thing that makes Stern Advent unique is the fact that, even when Christmas is over, it actually keeps on going – now as a “Winter Market” – until the beginning of January. This gives visitors an ideal opportunity to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere at their leisure, with the sometimes stressful Christmas season now behind them.
