Advent at Salzburg Fortress

Hohensalzburg Fortress isn’t just the world-famous emblem of Salzburg. It is also the site of a delightful Advent market which enchants visitors with its unaffected charm and authentic music.

The sounds of Advent amid ancient walls

The Advent market held on the inner courtyard of Hohensalzburg Fortress has drawn visitors for over twenty years with local arts and craftsmanship, delicious Christmas goodies and an entertaining side program. The peaceful and joyous music performed by small ensembles of wind musicians and choirs, in particular, takes the atmosphere of the Christmas season to an even higher level.

Especially magical are the more than a hundred traditional “Herrnhuter stars”, which bathe the Festungsgasse and the courtyard in an atmospheric sea of light. The wide selection of fringe events includes a Krampus parade and a children’s Christmas workshop.
