Advent in the
World Heritage region


Christmas Market Hallstatt

All who come from Hallstatt recognise the special charm of this little World Heritage community on Lake Hallstatt. The village takes on an extra charm during the Advent/Christmas season.

The romantic Christmas Market on the market square is, each year, the highlight of the Advent season. The market is organised by the people of Hallstatt and Obertraun and offers a diverse mix of traditional craft. Regional music groups accompany the market and bring a special Christmas atmosphere into Hallstatt.



The three dimensional crib scene in Hallstatt

The  HTBLA in Hallstatt set up the three dimensional crib scene on the market square. Other highlights include musical entertainment, traditional food and drink, mulled wine and punch, all of which add to the relaxing ambiance of the Christmas Markets.

The Hallstatt Christmas market traditionally takes place every year on 8th of December.
This was the program of the Christmas market 2019
