Highlights

Itinerary

  • After a 45 minutes scenic drive from Salzburg we first stop at the Mozart village St. Gilgen. The market stalls are elaborately painted inspired by the art of three-dimensional wall and ceiling paintings from the Baroque era with authentic Christmas decoration.
  • Then enjoy the rustic village of Strobl which turns into a live nativity scene. You will be fascinated by the scenery at the lake shore with many live animals and the Star of Bethlehem. From here you take the boat to St. Wolfgang, the romantic Village of Stars. You will pass the big Peace-lantern and it is worthwhile looking back at the huge comet above Strobl bay. At St. Wolfgang candles and torches create a special atmosphere. You can watch craftsmen at work and children can write a letter to the Christkind (Christ Child), the youngest assisted by angels
  • Inspired by the multifaceted Advent impressions you will return to Salzburg.
