Exhibition of nativity scenes in Bad Goisern

Christmas time in the Salzkammergut would not be perfect without all the beautiful wooden nativity scenes, lovingly crafted by the nativity set association.

An exhibition of these beautiful works of art has been held during advent each year since 2007. The Handicrafts Advent also takes place throughout the third weekend of advent in the Hand.Werk.Haus. For these two days the nativity scenes are exhibited in the evangelical old people’s home, right next to the market square.


The following photo gallery can be navigated with the arrow keys (left, right).
