Christmas Market Festung Hohensalzburg
This year the fortress event will once again shine in full glory. Already the walk to the fortress Hohensalzburg promises pure romance: on the way up more than a hundred traditional Moravian stars dive the fortress-alley into a sea of lights. Arrived in the courtyard, the market offers a diverse selection of local arts and crafts, creative gift ideas and Salzburg delicacies. Many Salzburg citizens come to the fortress at least once a year to enjoy the beautiful view over the Christmas-lit Old Town with a cup of mulled wine. Another special feature of the fortress event are the fresh tarte flambée from the historic Pfisterei. There is baked according to modern recipes in the centuries old wood stove. Popular with families is also the supporting program of the market. On all opening days there is a supervised children's program in the Atelier Hödlmoser with music, biscuit baking and Christmas crafts. On Sunday, the 1st of December, the Stefani-Perchten will be guests at the fortress. Creepy but never vicious is her visit, perhaps the most family-friendly Krampuslauf in Salzburg.
