Advent and Spa in Bad Hofgastein

Welcome to winter Magic & the Joys of Wellness

The snow crunches underfoot. The mulled wine warms hand and stomach. In the center of Bad Hofgastein, the atmosphere is pre-Christmas festive. The shutters are decorated for Christmas. The smell of mulled wine and punch wafts through the air. Burning logs in the fireplaces provide some warmth and brightness. Just now, the orchestra is lining up, smiling to each other, and a few moments later, a soft Christmas carol is heard.

The Advent program in Bad Hofgastein:

The Anklöckler

On 8.12.2022 at 5:30 p.m.

 

The Knocking Nights are the nights before Christmas and symbolize the search for shelter by Joseph and Mary before the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem.
old custom is especially lived in the Gasteinertal. Several small groups move from house to house and represent the difficult search for a hostel before the birth of Mary.

Smoking with Heidi Huber

every Saturday in Advent from 26.11.2022 always from 17.00 to 18.00 clock.

 

Still practiced is the ritual incense, especially in the Rauhnächten. In our country, the custom is practiced by many locals at Christmas, New Year and Epiphany. However, smoking herbs and resins is more than a ritual, because the released incense substances have many positive effects on us and our environment and can also help to maintain health.
