Christmas Tree Town & Advent in Austria

Enjoy a memorable Advent in the Alps!

Sankt Johann Alpendorf die Christbaumstadt

Concerts and plays, music and markets – in Sankt Johann-Alpendorf you will be treated to the tranquility and peace of an Austrian Advent, both in your holiday lodging and at the Sankt Johann Culture & Convention Centre. The charming and popular Christmas Market in nearby Salzburg (approx. 60km away) is always worth a visit!


Beginning the first weekend in Advent, Sankt Johann is transformed into a “Town of Christmas Trees”! Beautifully lit Christmas trees bedeck not only public squares but many of the shop windows.


And don’t forget the slopes – the weeks before the Christmas rush are the perfect time for some technical fine tuning. With little traffic and deep, fresh snow you’ll get a great start to the season.

In the pre-Christmas period, a lively Advent market will emerge in the city park. Some 30 wooden stalls will transform the park into a cozy Advent village. A modern Advent market with a sophisticated lighting concept will lead visitors into a Christmas wonderland, which should also be reminiscent of an adventurous childhood.
