"During our 200 Years of Silent Night trip with the Edtbrustner travel agency, my parents and I had the opportunity to spend two nights at this wonderful hotel. We were so comfortable, and found the rooms to be delightful, spacious and clean. All our meals were very good, and just what we wanted. The snow also helped to put us in the proper Christmas mood :-)"

Advent in the Salzkammergut: Christmas markets
The Christmas market in the city of Salzburg has always fascinated visitors. A wide range of stallholders sell their goods and delicacies around the cathedral. The market is framed by musical events such as the traditional trumpet fanfare every Saturday evening at Residenzplatz. The Christmas market at Mirabellplatz and the romantic Advent magic in Hellbrunn are also worth seeing. As well as the Christmas market, see Mozart's Salzburg during the most contemplative time of the year and enjoy one of the Advent concerts in the Festspielhaus or in the Andräkirche.
The small Christmas market in Hintersee, always held in the first weekend in Advent, features arts and crafts Hintersee. Let the magic of the little village of Hintersee enchant you, the place where Joseph Mohr – the famous writer of the song "Silent Night, Holy Night" – lived for ten years and served as a priest.
During the Wolfgangsee Advent in the Salzkammergut, the thriving customs fascinate all who witness them. Enjoy the cosy atmosphere of the Christmas markets in St. Wolfgang, St. Gilgen and Strobl against a fairytale nighttime backdrop of mountains and lakes.
