When against the backdrop of the more than 2,000 m high, snow-covered Nordketten mountain range the sound of Christmas carols drifts down from the alcove balcony of the Golden Roof in Innsbruck’s Old Town, city and mountain melt into one.
Each of Innsbruck’s six individual Christmas markets is proud of its very particular character.
Innsbruck’s Christmas Markets
Six ‘places to be’ during the pre-festive season
Romantics adore the ‘traditional version’ nestled beneath the brightly-lit Christmas tree by the Golden Roof against the backdrop of the snow-covered Nordketten mountain range. City folk gather to jazzy tunes along the gleaming, crystal-studded alley that flanks Maria Theresien Street, while urban bohemians meet at Wiltener Platzl, a festive inner-city oasis. Children’s eyes sparkle with joy as the splendid merry-go-round tries its very best to outshine a glistening Swarovski Christmas tree. The scenic Hungerburg Christmas market enchants with panoramic nighttime views of the city winter skyline. Innsbruck’s six Christmas markets are among the most wonderful ‘places to be’ during the Advent season.
Enjoy the festive pre-Christmas mood starting on December 15th! Innsbruck knows how to enchant its visitors.
