Christmas on the fortress Hohensalzburg

Advent market at the Hohensalzburg Fortress

Merry Christmas on the fortress Hohensalzburg

The Hohensalzburg Fortress Christmas market is an experience. Salzburg is a city that, with its historic old town, palaces and castles, is almost predestined to shine at Christmas. She does this in the truest sense of the word. There are quite a number of Christmas markets held in Advent transform the city into a sea of ​​lights made of Christmas trees, light garlands, illuminated stars and candles. This includes Christmas markets such as the Salzburg Christmas Market on Dom and Residenzplatzthe oldest Christmas market in the city, but also as romantic as the Advent magic in Hellbrunn Palace with his fairytale forest of coniferous trees adorned with red balls.

 

 

However, none of Salzburg's Christmas markets is as contemplative as the Christmas market at Hohensalzburg Fortress. He is not as tall as the others. But he conveys better with his wooden huts in the courtyard of the fortress Hohensalzburg the spirit of Christmas. He does this especially when brass groups play Christmas songs in front of the sculpture group on the side wall of the castle church. Not only we are so put into Christmas mood. It also goes to other visitors to the Christmas market. For example, the young couple next to us who, kissed by the romantic mood, kissed extensively.

What is special about the Hohensalzburg Fortress Christmas Market

Maybe it's because the market is smaller than the others, or that you can only reach it via the funicular or a steep road. It is not as crowded as the other markets. There are also quieter corners. In them we can enjoy the Christmas tree in the center or the stars in the night sky all the more. Families with children bake cookies in the fortress bakery. We don't let it take us and get to work ourselves. With the help of Katja and Moritz from Wellness-Bummler, Christina and Thomas from City, Sea, Country and Andreas from Travelwriticus colorful cookie figures are created. We paint and bake them on the spot. The fresh ones taste great with our glass of mulled cider Gingerbread particularly good afterwards when we visited the Christmas market at Hohensalzburg Fortress.
