Advent magic

in Salzburg's Lungau

A very special time of the year

Advent in Lungau is a very reflective, quiet time of year. Christmas traditions and regional delicacies enchant visitors young and old, and remind us that the most important celebration of the year is always anticipated with excitement and warmth in our hearts.


Advent and Christmas Markets

The beguiling scents of twigs, resin, cinnamon, clove, fruit cake, gingerbread, vanilla cookies, roasted chestnuts, sausage, bacon, and fresh-baked bread come from stands made of fragrant pine wood. Christmas tree decorations and homemade crafts, knitted and felted items, as well as nativity scenes, all awake our memories of Christmas.

The Christmas carol "Silent Night! Holy Night!"

From 1815 to 1817, Joseph Mohr worked as assistant priest in Mariapfarr and at this time wrote the text of his world famous Christmas carol "Silent Night, Holy Night". Within the historical premises of the old parsonage, the parochial and pilgrimage museum of Mariapfarr is home to valuable exhibits, documentation about Joseph Mohr, as well as a nativity scene with figures from the 18th century.
