When it gets colder outside...
When it gets colder outside, the days get shorter and winter slowly wraps the landscape in a wintry white blanket, then the most beautiful time of the year begins – Advent.
At the Mallnitzer Bergadvent in the Hohe Tauern National Park, you can expect not only an atmospheric Advent path, but also a colorful children’s program. Even the Christ Child would take a vacation here, because at the Mallnitzer Bergadvent authenticity, quality and tradition are in the foreground.
The Mallnitzer Bergadvent is a conscious counter-world to the hectic pre-Christmas hustle and bustle in the cities. Experience the snow-covered mountain world, listen to the most beautiful Advent songs and let yourself be enchanted by contemplative stories in the Almstube.
Get in the mood for Christmas with the fruity scent of mulled wine, punch and culinary highlights. Enjoy the Mallnitzer Bergadvent with all your senses – Advent like in childhood, Advent like back then.
In addition to our regular stations in the Advent Village, we have put together a colorful supporting program. Whether it’s a visit from St. Nicholas, musical performances, lectures or workshops: stop by and experience Advent with us!
