Christmas in Tyrol
An atmospheric Advent in Innsbruck
There is no better place to enjoy the run-up to Christmas than Innsbruck. There are 5 Christmas markets here offering mulled wine, punch and beautiful gift ideas. A visit to Tyrol’s Advent carols and one of the traditional nativity scenes is also a must during the most peaceful time of year.
Innsbruck’s Christmas markets with more than 180 Christmas stands offer tradition, modernity, mountain flair and urban diversity. As a guest at the Hotel Bierwirt, you will be just a few minutes away from the following Christmas markets:
- Altstadt (old town)
- Marktplatz (market square)
- Wiltener Platzl
Advent markets so suit every taste
The most traditional Christmas market is undoubtedly the one held at the heart of Innsbruck’s historic old town. It is now taking place for the 40th time against the backdrop of the Golden Roof. The Christmas market on the Maria Theresien-Strasse has a more modern slant: new stands, modern lighting design and an exceptional range of products build on the traditions at the heart of the city.
With the new Hungerburgbahn railway, the journey to the highest Christmas market on the Hungerburg is an experience in itself. Once at the top, you can enjoy dreamy views aver the city accompanied by some tasty treats!
Advent carols and nativity scenes
Advent carols and musicians at the Congresszentrum Innsbruck (just an 8 minute drive from the Hotel Bierwirt) are a typically Tyrolean Christmas custom along with the numerous nativity scenes.
