Fairytale Advent in Tyrol with Christmas Magic at Kufstein Fortress
The old walls look magical with the light of a thousand lamps. The Tyrolean Mountains all around, which turn black in the dusk lighting, look like a protective ring around the fortress. Delicious smells emanate from the small stands around the space. Cinnamon and mulled wine. One or two steps, through the narrow archway, into the round, cosy corridors. The lights throw dancing shadows onto the stone walls. Christmassy sounds. The corridor opens up. Advent stands, Christmas presents and traditional handicrafts – Christmas Magic in Kufstein Fortress.
Old fashioned Christmas
Christmas Magic at Kufstein Fortress takes you back to a contemplative Advent like in the "old days". Rest. Contemplation. Authenticity. Tyrolean traditions. Handicrafts. The customs of the eight picturesque villages and the nature-bound fortress city. The historical ambiance of the Kufstein landmark offers an atmospheric and contemplative framework for a magical Christmas world. Tyrolean delicacies and treats from the region. Mulled wine and punch. A walk through the casemates really lets you dive into the life of the past, and takes you away into a different world, full of contemplative moments. As well as the Christmas workshop and bakery for little guests, this year there is also an angel post office.
On the four weekends before Christmas, from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm, the corridors of Josefsburg and the open air fortress arena presents visitors with a unique, lovingly decorated and designed Christmas market, full of culinary delicacies, local handicrafts and selected gift ideas from the region. For the little guests there is a children’s programme with Christmas workshop and cookie baking. The angel post office listens to the wishes of visitors of all ages.
