St. Gilgen the Baroque Advent Celebration - Marvel at the beautifully illuminated lake Wolfgang, with its 50 candles all alight to create a dramatic scene, admire the decorated houses of St.Gilgen, and pick out Christmas gifts and trinkets at the wonderfully decorated stalls. Shining from afar and guiding the way to the Advent market, an 11 metre high candle in St. Gilgen on the shores of Lake Wolfgangsee beckons one to a village bathed in the uniquely special light of candles.

St. Wolfgang the Romantic Advent Village - Awaiting the Christ child.
Giant Advent gates are the entryway onto the lantern-lit road with its Christmas trees, candles and metre-high flaming torches.
If you are approaching from across the lake, the huge, floating light of peace lantern will amaze you. The Christ child is eagerly awaited here and fascinating living traditions encourage visitors to while away their time. The many things going on, together with the singing angels of Lake Wolfgangsee, all help bring about the Christmas spirit.

Strobl the Nativity Village - Get close to nature!
Floating weightlessly over the nativity village of Strobl, a brightly lit, six metre long Christmas star leads the way.
This comet theme accompanies visitors as they make their way through the Advent market. At Christmas, this idyllic village on Lake Wolfgangsee turns into a romantic nativity village and, as you enter Strobl, a shepherds path takes you to a giant Advent gate. 30 stalls with real wooden tiled roofs take you on a journey through time into the Advent of yesterday.
