Hellbrunner Adventzauber in Salzburg

The Hellbrunner Adventzauber is a Christmas market with a splendid atmosphere. It is situated on the grounds of Hellbrunn Palace (Schloss Hellbrunn) in Salzburg. About 400 trees decorated with 13,000 red Christmas balls makes the market special. For my delectation a small part of the nearby trick fountains is open for the public as well. Allthough the trick…

Christmas market at the Arsenal in Vienna

Every year in December a medieval Christmas market takes place in front of the Museum of Military History (Heeresgeschichtlichs Museum) in Vienna. The market, which is generally named after the whole area (Arsenal) lasts only for a weekend so you should look for the exact date beforehand. I love medieval Christmas markets because people as well as attractions…

The crib consists of about 40 life-size sculptures scattered over a larger area. Everybody is invited to walk betCeen the figures so in the evening it is difficult to decide who is a real…

Christmas market in Sankt Wolfgang

The Christmas market of Sankt Wolfgang im Salzkammergut is part of three markets (Wolfgangseer Advent) which are located around lake Wolfgangsee. So people can move from market to market by crossing the lake by boat. Personally, I love the combination of Christmas stalls and traditional shops in the same street. E.g. the shop depicted above is a toy shop located…

Adventmarkt at the Karlskirche, Vienna

The Adventmarkt at the Karlskirche is a very special one. Nearly every hut offers products made by artists or craftsmen. It was much fun to walk along the stands listening to the shopkeepers hammering and polishing their items. Besides the Baroque Karlskirche (St. Charles’s Church) offers not only an amazing setting but also an elevator…

I need your help: These days I am writing about Christmas markets in Vienna. These markets have German names like Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas market), Weihnachtsdorf (Christmas village), Christkindlmarkt (Kris kringle market?). Now I have a special question about the best way to translate their names: Which names – the German or the English ones – should…
