Advent in the Vienna Alps

Great anticipation: a winter hike with the Christ Child

Just one hour from Vienna, there is a festive paradise, where Advent, ambience & exciting excursion destinations meet.

In the Vienna Alps, winter hikers wander through Advent markets, between castles, streams and mountains, and from the lively Lama Nature Park to a relaxing spa hotel. Over 20 Advent markets shorten the wait for the Christ Child – they are against stunning natural backdrops like in Johannesbachklamm, within the historic walls of the Museumsdorf Krumbach and of Burg Kirchschlag, or right next to the gift shopping mile and the cathedral, like the Adventzauber Wiener Neustadt. Reichenau Castle is particularly festive. The atmospheric Adventmeile Seebenstein can be easily reached by train. The Children’s Advent on the Hohe Wand is recommended for the little ones.  Experience a quiet, contemplative and romantic Advent at the Rohrer Bergadvent.
