What You Can Expect
Next, enjoy a lovely boat ride to the rustic Christmas market of St Wolfgang. Pass by a giant floating lantern and the floodlit Ochsenkreuz altar and experience stunning views of Falkensteinwand mountain. Warm up with some Wolfgangsee Christmas punch in a souvenir cup and receive an Advent candle at this charming market.
Your final stop is St Gilgen, which is most recognizable as the wedding church from The Sound of Music. Here you will have the opportunity to browse traditional seasonal gifts such as gingerbread, handmade toys and Christmas tree ornaments. Your guide also shares information about its connection to the Mozart family.
Throughout your tour, you'll have ample opportunity to purchase gifts for loved ones (and yourself!) at the markets' stalls. After your afternoon visiting three enchanting Christmas markets, return to Salzburg where you will be dropped off at the Mirabellplatz bus terminal. From there, it's easy to continue Christmas shopping on your own or make your way back to your hotel.
This tour was one of the highlights of my 12-night stay in Salzburg in December 2012. You visit three different villages, with a boat ride in between, and the entire day is magical.
We loved this tour. We got to see the Christmas Markets and everything was so pretty. The boat ride was very enjoyable and the scenery on the lake was so beautiful.
