Innsbruck Mountain Christmas

Innsbruck, 15.11.2022 - 06.01.2023

During Advent Season, Innsbruck comes fully alive with a feverish Christmastime gaiety: 7 Christmas Markets, over 200 stalls and a 14-meter tall Christmas tree full of sparkling crystals—from the Golden Roof to 300 meters above town at Hungerburg.

With holiday lights illuminating the seven Christmas Markets with its distinctive stalls and rich variety of seasonal events, Innsbruck is a gift for visitors of all ages! What makes Innsbruck Mountain Christmas this special is that the markets take place against spectacular mountain backdrops and combine tradition and modernity, mountain adventure and urban sophistication. In the midst of the picturesque, medieval town center of Innsbruck, surrounded by majestic, snow-covered mountains at the foot of the world-famous Golden Roof, you will find Innsbruck’s oldest and largest market, a Christmas bazaar of truly Alpine flavor. Over 70 chalets packed full of gorgeous Christmas gifts line the cobbled alleys surrounding the famous Golden Roof at the old town district. Fairytale figures are brought to life in a series of stunning displays, along with live storytelling at nearby lanes and the observation deck offers stunning views of the old town district adorned in holiday finery.

The lovely Christmas Market at Hungerburg, situated 300 meters above Innsbruck, competes for bragging rights. Innsbruck’s highest Christmas Market boasts panoramic views of Innsbruck. The Christmas Market on Market Square celebrates the sights, sounds and scents of Christmas with a 14-meter-tall Christmas tree decorated with thousands of sparkling and glittering Swarovski crystals and is the place to go for families with kids. It comes complete with puppet theaters, storytelling, petting zoo and more. Contemporary holiday illuminations and stalls selling goods from all over the world adorn Maria-Theresien Street, Innsbruck’s main artery. Enchanting Wiltener Platzl Square, St. Nikolaus district and Kaiserweihnacht at Bergisel are transformed into artistic wonderlands, where distinctive stalls invite you to browse elaborate crafts.
