Kitzbühel at Christmas: The Enchanting Christmas Market

Head to the lovely small town of Kitzbühel for an idyllic Christmas break. The undisputed highlight of the Holiday Season in Kitzbühel is the arrival of Saint Nicholas. The Zillertal Christmas featuring Marc Pircher and the concert given by Wilten Boys’ Choir are as well guaranteed to get into the Christmas spirit.

With storytelling, pony riding, Krampus runs, historic glockenspiel and carol singing, the famous ski resort of Kitzbühel is truly enchanting in the festive season—the annual Christmas Market, from November 24 to December 25, adds yet another dimension.
