The Salzburg Christmas Markets make an ideal setting to begin the Christmas season in style. They are full of Salzburg locals selling an array of the finest festive cuisine and traditional handicrafts that make the perfect gift for a loved one.
The Christmas market at the Cathedral is one-of-a-kind. Countless festively decorated stalls lie at the heart of the historic centre and the irresistible aromas of toasted almonds and baked apples fill the air whilst choirs serenade visitors with Christmas carols. Another charming market is held high above the city's rooftops in the courtyard of Hohensalzburg Fortress, from where visitors can enjoy stunning views over the festively illuminated city.
The Salzburg Christmas Market is just as charming as the city itself. Surrounded by the winter scenery of the Alps, the historic centre provides a truly festive atmosphere. The Hellbrun Castle Market is also a popular attraction with visitors to Salzburg, with its lavish architecture and reindeer that roam the castle grounds providing a unique atmosphere. During Advent, the castle transforms into a giant calendar with each of its 24 windows lit up in the countdown to Christmas.
