Stoaberg Advent Saalfelden Leogang
"where we are at home"
Down-to-earth and traditional, sincere and truly homely: That is Advent in Saalfelden Leogang. Guests and locals alike delight in the old customs, new handicrafts and typical food.
Who doesn't long for an Advent as in times gone by, during which you can actually spend the supposedly "most peaceful time of year" in true peace and con-templation – completely without any frantic search for gifts in overcrowded shops and the constant stream of Christmas music and advertising?
In Saalfelden Leogang, a region between the craggy limestone giants and gentle alpine meadows of the Salzburg Pinzgaus, this is still very much possible. In the pre-Christmas season, authentic culture with specialities typical of the region still prevails here. The romantically decorated booths at the Christmas markets beckon to linger and sample the delicacies on offer. Taste the homemade cookies, get some Christmas presents and enjoy the delicious hot punch, fruit bread and chestnuts.
Christmas decorations made from natural materials such as straw, wood and stone are available. A true treasure trove of hard-to-find handicraft carved from local wood, discovered at the Christmas exhibition in the Leogang handicraft shop. Here visitors can browse among birchwood lanterns, pinewood bread bins, hearts, angels, bird houses and many other Christmas ideas. Advent events full of atmosphere help shorten the wait for Father Christmas. In many places, wood log lanterns spread their warm light.
