Advent in Saalfelden Leogang

Strolling around the Christmas markets, pausing to enjoy the mulled wine and cookies, marvelling at high-quality Pinzgau handcraft and discovering local customs at traditional events such as the scary run of the Christmas demons known as “Krampus” – that’s what makes the season of Advent in Saalfelden Leogang the most beautiful and reflective time of year.
