According to the motto ‘A time for silence – a time for nature’ the Visitor Centre opens its doors for two days during December. And what you will find there is a Christmas market that couldn’t possibly be any more idyllic. Those who love the time before Christmas and know how to appreciate traditional Christmas markets will quickly fall in love with this treasure.
Strolling from stand to stand you will discover traditional produce and crafts, such as incense, thick wool socks and hand-made soap, all while you listen to classic Austrian Christmas folk music. You will also find culinary treats from the partners in the National Park and hot beverages for both kids and grown-ups. For the little ones there’s a kids programme in the heated lodge, while grown-ups can warm their hands outside at the fireplaces.
So this is what a traditional Christmas market in the only Styrian National Park looks like. Another activity that you shouldn’t miss are the guided tours through the wintry forest, because that’s where the motto ‘A time for silence – a time for nature’ becomes real. Both experienced visitors and locals know that the best way to get to the Christmas market is by shuttle. Ah, and don’t forget to take one of the mugs from the Christmas market home with you!
