Christmas markets originated in Saxony, Germany, in the Late Middle Ages. They were held to celebrate the Advent season and offered various activities such as Christmas tree sales, nativity scenes, as well as food and drink.
When visiting a Christmas market, expect a festive atmosphere with seasonal music playing in the background. The holiday cheer and charming yuletide glow will remind you of the magic of Christmas while you sample food from some of the best local restaurants.
The Salzburg Christmas market is located in the heart of the city and offers a variety of traditional Austrian food and drink. The market also features a nativity scene, a Christmas carousel, and live music.
