Advent in Dorfgastein

When the snow falls from the sky in thick flakes and everything is covered with a cotton-white blanket, the Dorfgastein municipal park exudes a magical charm. The elementary school students are performing the shepherd's play, and next to them a farmer is offering local delicacies. Winter in Dorfgastein means coming to rest and enjoying the Christmas season.
