In the Wildschönau, the Advent season is still a quiet time away from crowded shopping streets.
The Bergadvent Wildschönau is one of the most traditional Advent events in the pre-Christmas season.
On the four advent weekends, the Wildschönau becomes a particularly contemplative place. Advent events take place throughout December. Mountain Advent in Oberau, Village Advent in Niederau and Auffacher Musikantenadvent. Hectic is a foreign word.
An ancient tradition in the Lower Inn Valley is nativity singing performed by the „Anklöpfler“, a group of singers dressed as shepherds go from house to house. They act out the nativity and through the old nativity songs spread the word of Christ’s birth in Bethlehem. This tradition has been handed down from generation to generation.
