Lower Austria: Advent Traditions, History, and Enchanting Places
We invite you to visit 6 regions of Lower Austria, which are easily accessible by public transport and car, thanks to their convenient location around Vienna.
Weinviertel – zvyky a tradice vinného regionu
Experience how Christmas and Advent were once thanks to the cellar lanes and scenery of the historic sights of the Weinviertel region. If you are looking for Christmas cookies here, wish "Weihnachtskrapferl"! It is a local name for sweet pastries. Enjoy the joy of Christmas by strolling the longest cellar lane in Europe in Hadres or strolling through Loamgrui, an idyllic village with approximately 60 mills. All tips for Advent markets in this area can be found here.
Radiant Christmas - Hot Cider and Iron Sparks
Light and fire, cider and iron. The patron saints of the Mostviertel region in their best form present themselves at the Advent event "Radiant Christmas" (Flammende Weihnacht). Fire and cold create in the castles of Waidhofen a. D. Ybbs, Neubrücke, St. Peter in the Au, in the blacksmithing of Ybbs, in the Carthusian Gaming monastery and in the abbey of Seitenstetten, a pleasant and exceptional pre-Christmas atmosphere. Small but charming Advent events in Lunz, Sonntagberg, Rosenau and Reinsberg for the first time enrich the range of markets. More advent trip tips can be found here.
Advent in Wachau – Experience Amazing Historical Scenery
Concentrate on what is essential - family and friends and enjoy the calm season of the year. Where vineyards, orchards and gardens bloom in all its splendor, there is real peace in the winter. The Rossatz and Spitz castles, the Melk and Göttweig abbeys, as well as the ruins of Dürnstein and Aggstein castles become the scene of Advent concerts and markets during the Advent in Wachau program. When the trumpeters sound and the smell of mulled wine spreads across the Danube valley, a peaceful atmosphere is everywhere. Traditional Christmas Market at Rathausplatz St. Pölten, the capital of Lower Austria, offers everything you want from the markets and what you always look forward to. Also, do not miss the complete news! The GARTEN TULLN botanical garden will be lit up for the first time in the glitter of Christmas lights during this year's Advent weekend.

Children's Eyes Spark in the Vienna Woods
The Advent Markets in the Vienna Woods are as colorful as the Advent calendar in the children's room. Live Christmas trees and fairy-tale characters are running in front of the magically lit castle in Bad Vöslau. Perinbaba also appears at Neuhaus, shaking her duvet and telling the children a fairy tale. A tour of the past will take you to the historic rooms of the former hunting castle of the Habsburg-Lorraine dynasty, which is exclusively open to visitors to Advent markets.
Zimní adventní túra ve Vídeňských Alpách
Frozen streams and snow-capped mountains are unique natural locations for Advent markets. In the Vienna Alps, visiting cozy Christmas markets is often associated with a winter walk. On the castle hill high above the town of Kirschlag while drinking punch, you can enjoy a perfect view of the Bucklige Welt hills in the castle ruins. In the elegant Reichenau Castle, you can stroll between the stalls and taste game ham prepared according to an old recipe, smoked trout and shredder.

In Waldviertelu, Craft Is Close to People's Hearts
Handmade products give the gift even more uniqueness and beauty. Many crafts from the Christmas market stalls at Rosenburg Castle, Grafenegg, Zwettl and Weitra will delight you under the tree. You can get inspired in Advent markets and then try handicraft at the Waldviertel Craft Weeks. For a moment you become turner, potter or weaver. But if that is not enough, with the help of real professionals you will learn to cook many specialties of poppy, potatoes, beer, herbs etc. at the Waldviertler Häferlgucker event.
We wish you the most beautiful Christmas markets in Lower Austria
