What to expect

Discover the main sights of Salzburg during winter time and stroll over the famous Christmas market of Salzburg, the “Salzburger Christkindlmarkt”, with this guided Christmas tour.

The walking tour starts at the Residence Square, right in front of the big Christmas tree. Walk through the Christmas market to the Cathedral of Salzburg. Learn how the baptismal font of the Cathedral, assistant pastor Joseph Mohr and the musician Johann Michael Haydn are connected with the song "Silent Night, Holy Night". The tour continues to the St. Peter district with stunning views on the Hohensalzburg fortress along the way. The Benedictine monastery St. Peter gives a pleasant contrast to the princely city and offers beautiful impressions of some church tower. From the Salzburg Concert Hall you will go to the University Square, where you will discover the local farmers market with delicious cheese, vegetables and fruits and from where you can easily reach Mozart's birthplace.

Back at the Christkindlmarkt it's time for a Christmas treat and mulled wine. As a souvenir of your stay at the Salzburger Christkindlmarkt you will receive the mulled wine mug as a gift. Feel free to stay longer at the Christmas market. There are interesting programs and beautiful music every day that will set you in the proper Christmas spirit.
