Christmas market Salzburg at the cathedral square
The Salzburg Christmas market on Domplatz is the oldest in the city. The stalls that make it tempting for fresh gingerbread, hot Mulled wine or apple punch and sausages with the scent of cabbage are grouped around the cathedral on Domplatz and Residenzplatz. The Advent market on Domplatz is certainly Salzburg's most popular Christmas market and attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world every day. While strolling through the market, we listen to the comments in all possible languages in the world.
No wonder! The Salzburg Christmas Market offers its visitors numerous experiences that increase the anticipation of Christmas. During the Advent market there are daily pre-Christmas events that make a visit to the Christkindlmarkt varied. A visit to this Christmas market is part of every visit Christmas in Salzburg.
Ice skating on the Christmas market Salzburg
Even if there is still little snow on the surrounding mountains of Salzburg the ice rink on Mozartplatz provides winter fun at the Salzburg Christmas market and conjures up a little winter romance on the square. And when the fiakers drive their guests across the square, the Christmas mood is perfect.
The Christmas market Salzburg at night
We experience the Christmas market in Salzburg during the day and in the evening, and I have to say, it is definitely more atmospheric when it's dark. Only then will the lights, candles and stars come into their own. Even if we then wrap our scarves thick around the neck, pull the cap lower in the face and put your hands in warm gloves. This is part of a typical Christmas market visit. And are not you? Just then a hot glow or orange punch tastes best!
