When it gets dark early in the evening, when the "Anklöpfler" come to visit or when the "Christkind" and his entourage make children's eyes shine, you can feel that Christmas means more than hecticness and commerce.
Advent time and Christmas in the Alpbachtal in Tyrol means cosiness, advent magic and a contemplative mountain Christmas, where still old customs are cultivated and lived. Many customs, which have long been forgotten elsewhere, are lived as a matter of course in the pre-Christmas period. In the Alpbachtal holiday region, the pre-Christmas season is enjoyed away from the hustle and bustle. Authentic Christmas markets, old handicrafts, culinary specialities and Christmassy sounds get you in the right mood for Christmas.
You will experience all this not only at the popular Rattenberger Advent, but also at the Christmas market in Brixlegg, which is especially popular with children. Contemplative sounds in front of the basilica await you at the cosy Mariathal Advent. In the village centre of Reith i.A. on the last Sunday before Christmas, you can get in the mood for Christmas with hitting the hammer, blowing the brass, petting the zoo and much more.
