Highlights in Advent

Santa sighted … at Schladming Mountain Christmas   

From 23 November until 24 December 2018, everything and everyone will once again be focused on Santa and his helpers; sharing that joyous Christmas anticipation, just the way it used to be years ago; those excited butterflies in children’s tummies, the fragrances of Christmas teasing your nose, Christmas songs and stories in your ear, homemade treats to tantalize your taste buds, along with all kinds of lovingly created arts and crafts certain to captivate your heart. High expectations indeed. But expectations which Schladming Mountain Christmas has more than lived up to for many a year.

The entire Talbach gorge in Schladming will be transformed into an Advent market. All you could possibly wish for during the run-up to Christmas – just as if everything on Santa’s own wish list had come true. Sparkling eyes, high spirits and magical sounds in the midst of crackling fires, rustic huts offering Styrian specialties and authentic crafts, as well as Christmas shows starring local performers, big and small, on both of our Advent stages.
All of this and more awaits you during this, the most beautiful time of the year!

Advent Magic in the Talbachklamm

Saturday, 8 December and Saturday, 15 December 2018 from 5.30 p.m.

An absolute highlight of Schladming Mountain Christmas is “Advent Magic in the Gorge”, a time when flickering torches and the play of light magically transform the Talbachklamm into a mystical world of angels, fairy-tale tellers and musicians. But the event’s main director is Mother Nature herself – glistening snow and ice vying with the surging waters of the Talbach for our attention, and constantly creating new shapes and sculptures.
