The Krampuswelt

Learn all about the customs & myths

Every year, an area of the Hellbrunn Advent Market turns into a mystical world of the “Krampus”. The traditional customs of the Anif Krampusse create a spectacular scene when the impressive Krampusse show off their original masks and costumes. This is a great introduction for visitors to the secrets of mystical customs and the history of the Krampus. To be able to "touch a Krampus" should also keep our smallest guests from having any fear of them.

Krampuswelt is a permanent exhibition during the Advent Market.
