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.

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.
