Stoaberg Advent celebrations with mulled wine and the “Krampus” run
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.
Pinzgau products – “Echt.Gsund.Guad.”
As Pinzgau’s products and rustic local cooking are very special things, it is worth getting to know them a little better. Visit the farmers, buy products at a farm shop and tuck into Pinzgau’s specialities in traditional inns. Here’s a tip: keep a lookout for the green seal of quality reading “Echt.Gsund.Guad” (“genuine, healthy and good”) that identifies regional products.
