Saint Nicholas Parade and Krampus Run in Igls

Innsbruck-Igls, 05.12.2021

St. Nicholas and his entourage of angels and devilish creatures called "Krampus" will roam the streets of Igls, bringing sweet gifts to the well-behaved. As you have been good all year anyway, you have nothing to worry about -- right??!!

This fantastic evening is launched in Igls at 4:00pm with stalls selling hot mulled wine and seasonal delicacies at the village center (Alter Schulgarten). The St. Nicholas parade begins at 5:00pm. Suited in red, St. Nicholas and his entourage of angels brings sweet gifts to the well-behaved little girls and boys. However, Christmas season in Tirol brings not only St. Nicholas, the bearer of gifts, but also Krampus, his darker side, who appears to mete out punishments for misdeeds of the past year. Large, foreboding, black-clad and antlers on his head, some 50 devilish Krampus figures roam the streets of the village center from 5:45pm onwards.
