Advent in Kufsteinerland
contemplative. enchanting. historic.
Christmas is in the air around the Kufsteinerland. During the Advent Season, the 4 weeks before Christmas, the town of Kufstein and the Kufstein Fortress are transformed into a magical Christmas wonderland.
Live music, culinary delights and a varied programme for the whole family. In the historic fortress, the focus is on handicrafts. The Christmas market in Kufstein's town park is cosy and informal. A traditional Christmas market is held by the lake in Thiersee.
Discover the Kufsteinerland with our adventure programme.
Christmas market in the municipal parc
In Kufstein City Park, a festive Advent gathering occurs. It features small gift ideas and Tyrolean delicacies like Zillertaler Krapfen and Kiachln. Traditional stoneware mugs serve punch and mulled wine in various varieties. A carousel and a nostalgic train provide young guests with a delightful experience. Christmas live music, a decorated and illuminated city park, and many small surprises create a festive atmosphere in downtown Kufstein.
The Christmas market in Kufstein City Park takes place from Wednesday to Sunday between November 24, 2023, and December 23, 2023.
Christmas Magic in the fortress
During Advent, the Kufstein Fortress also adorns itself in a Christmas dress.
Original craftsmanship is live-presented in the historical casemates. In the "Christmas Workshop," visitors can engage in crafting activities. The fortress is accompanied by brass musicians and carol singers for a musical touch. The museum and the heroic organ of the castle remain open throughout the Advent season.
The Christmas magic is open on Saturdays and Sundays between November 25, 2023, and December 17, 2023.
During the Advent season, the Christkindlmarkt Thiersee presents a unique experience.
Creating a festive atmosphere are the brass musicians from the Bundesmusikkapelle Vorderthiersee and the church choir from Hinterthiersee. The market stalls offer regional delicacies, and additional enjoyment can be found in the horse-drawn sleigh rides provided by the Vorderthiersee Fire Department.
The Christkindlmarkt in Thiersee takes place on Sunday, December 17, 2023.
Kufstein is part of "Advent in Tirol," representing authentic pre-Christmas traditions.
Eight regions have joined forces under the umbrella brand "Advent in Tirol." These regions include Achensee, Hall in Tirol, Innsbruck, Kufstein, Rattenberg, Schwaz, Seefeld, and St. Johann in Tirol. Our mission as the "Advent in Tirol Group" is to collaboratively create a delightful and atmospheric pre-Christmas season at our Advent markets in Tirol.
To be part of Advent in Tirol, the highest quality standards must be met, from the visual appearance to the diverse offerings. Enchanting program highlights that focus on traditions and customs are essential. The markets, in a typical Tyrolean manner, facilitate encounters between people from near and far.
