Christmas in Salzburg
By Viator, October 2013
Stores throughout Salzburg are decorated with elaborate Christmas scenes and festive lights in late November and giant Christmas trees decorated in silver and gold go up in all the squares. Christmas markets spring up all over town – in the elegant Marktplatz, outside the cathedral, in the gardens of Schloss Mirabell, and at Schloss Hellbrunn. Here the market is held in the courtyard, with the castle windows serving as a gigantic advent calendar. Stalls sell presents, tree decorations, chestnuts, gingerbread and toasted almonds; people crowd around the Christmas trees to sing carols and sip glühwein.
