Magic Advent Spirit


Hellbrunn Christmas Angel


Wishes to the Christ Child



Welcome to the "hellbrunnER AdventZAUBER"

Wintery trick fountains, the Hellbrunn Christmas Angel, a fairytale-like scenery and a Krampus to touch. 

The Advent market right outside the city of Salzburg has always been a memorable experience for the young and the young at heart. From mid-November the facade of the palace with its 24 windows turns into a huge Advent calendar. In front of the Hellbrunn Palace arises a fairytale forest with more than 400 conifers, decorated with 13,000 red Christmas baubles and fairy lights, which light up the entire area during night-time and create a very sepcial atmosphere. With this year's innovations Josef Gassner would like to suprise and enchant not only guests from all over the world, but also the locals from Salzburg.
