The Alpine Advent has an olde worlde, traditional Christmas charm which is has all but died out elsewhere. This Christmas market is long on Austrian tradition with home cooked delicacies, prepared in the wood heated oven or over an open fire, and short on commercialism.
The Alpine Advent takes place in the atmospheric Z'Bach Farming Museum, which is festively decorated for the occasion. Tirolean culture can be experienced first hand with nativity singers, plays, christmas baking, an exhibition of handmade cribs, to name but a few of the attractions.

You reach the museum via St Francis' Path where statues have been placed dedicated to St Francis of Assisi and his Canticles to Brother Sun.

The ancient farmhouse which is now a museum is traditionally decorated for another advent.
Music groups, children's choir, kid's program and nativity plays make this a very special event.

Sozial- & Gesundheitssprengel Wildschönau. Crafts, warm snacks and drinks
