At this time of year St Wolfgang and the surrounding villages are transformed into a paradise for all lovers of Christmas. Each village has a Christmas market which is alive with people drinking gluhwein, eating grostl and generally taking in the wonderful atmosphere.
The ferry boats are running and you can buy a round ticket to visit all the markets, at Strobl, St Gilgan as well as St Wolfgang. It takes about 35 minutes to St Gilgen
After an hours boat ride to the other end of the lake we arrive in Strobl.
In Strobl there are many wood carved figures with a lovely crypt scene in the music pavilion.
Well, I hope that gives you a taste of Advent here in the Salzkammergut, wish you could all be here!
