Advent in Saalfelden Leogang

 

Tradition and modernity during the pre-Christmas period

Experience the time of peace and contemplation with original Pinzgau traditions. Starting with the Nikolaus and its gruesome krampussen (Perchten) over Anglöckler and pesterer to the traditional smoking the Advent in Saalfelden Leogang is still celebrated as before. If you spend an afternoon at the advent market with Pinzgauer handicraft, warming mulled wine and biscuits, you can understand why the anticipation for christmas here could still take a bit longer...

The customs in the Advent season

The tradition of the "Rachn gehen" was considered a ritual of cleaning and was performed in Christmas (24.12), New Year's Night (31.12) and also in the Dreikönigsnacht (06.01). In the parlor the crib was put up and prayed in the evening.

Under "Anglöckel Pfinstage" the locals understood the Thursdays in Advent. During these days the Anglöckler moved with their songs from house to house to spread the pre-Christmas mood.
