26th Nov - 24th Dec 2015

For the third year running, Kitzbühel, the legendary sports town in the Alps, has won the prestigious, "world’s best ski area", award, showcasing not only the surrounding mountains and ski slopes, but also the contemplative side of Kitzbuehel. From November 26th until December 24th, 2015, the historic medieval centre will once again be transformed to resemble a festive scene from a traditional Christmas card. For 30 days over the festive period, Kitzbühel can well and truly say, “Welcome to the most magical Christmas town in the Alps!”

Advent in the Mountains

At the heart of this pretty mountain resort, the enchanting Kitzbühel Christmas Market is the perfect place to look and taste and simply enjoy the magical atmosphere. And there is much else to see and do in the Christmas spirit, including the historical glockenspiel in the tower of the Katharinenkirche, the nativity plays and the various Christmas concerts.

Kitzbühler Christmas Market

From 26th November the Kitzbueheler Hinterstadt returns again to its wonderful display of many kiosks and stands displaying a wonderful Christmas atmosphere, with so many delightful items for every gift imaginable, from culinary delicacies to traditional handicrafts and more precious presents than you can imagine! Not to forget the lovely “hot drinks”. A new attraction this year is the ‘Stroking zoo', to go pony riding and to listen to traditional children Christmas stories. These are read out every day the market is open.

Children's Day

The children can draw angels or bake scones with Michaela. An opportunity to write a letter to the Father Christmas shouldn't be missed. They can write down or draw their own special Christmas wishes, then afterwards post them directly from the Christmas Market Post. Who knows maybe one or two wishes may come true.
This year there is a variety of musical performances which will include choral singers and groups from all the region. A new offer this year, is the Christmas CD, compiled by various local groups, which has been produced and on sale at the market. The proceeds go towards helping needy families have a better Christmas.

Living Advent calendar

1st Dec - 5th January 2016 5pm - 10pm

Another unique item in the run-up to Christmas in the mountains is the special Advent calendar to be seen in the nearby village of Reith, where 24 buildings are decorated with calendar windows, which are opened one a day starting on 1 December. And the local people have a rare offering of traditional hospitality, inviting visitors to sample their mulled wine, biscuits and music in a private setting.

So get in the mood for one of the nicest times of the year, and join us in Kitzbühel to celebrate Christmas the way it should be celebrated!
