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.
On Saturday, 10.12.2022, from 12:00 the Advent market Dorfgastein takes place.
In the Advent season in the Gastein Valley an Advent market must not be missing. In the Dorfgastein community park you can buy regional products and handicrafts at the traditional Advent market. Wise men and Anklöckler as well as the shepherd play of the elementary school students underline the traditional anchoring of the pre-Christmas season in Gastein. Come by and let yourself be enchanted!
On 27.12.2022, the stoves are heated from 17.00 clock.
The people of Dorfgastein have found a particularly nice way to bring the Advent and Christmas spirit closer to their guests. Serenades, stories, mulled wine & punch, a nativity scene, many small stoves, very much atmosphere and contemplation for the days shortly after Christmas.
