Enchanting Christmas markets, Christmas concerts and tranquil chapel hikes: The most contemplative time of the year becomes a special experience in the unique atmosphere of Seefeld.
The Seefeld Christmas Market invites you to stroll and enjoy the rustic huts in Tyrolean log cabin style in the Seefeld pedestrian zone. Every day from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. (on 31 December even until 1 a.m.), visitors are offered everything from culinary delicacies to regional handicrafts that is genuine and authentic. And all of this in the middle of a unique winter landscape, because due to the altitude of 1,200 metres above sea level, real winter is almost guaranteed here!
Many wonderful smells hang in the air at Christmas time. One scent brings back childhood memories that are particularly happy: Grandma’s wine noodles. Wine noodles with mulled wine are a real traditional Tyrolean dish at Christmas time that has been forgotten. Completely unjustly. This is why you can try Grandma’s secret recipe here.
When my alarm clock rings at five in the morning, I crawl out of bed and yawn at the toothbrush. Actually I am a passionate late riser, but the day’s work of a traditional Tyrolean baker begins long before the first dawn. Today an experienced family business invited me to learn some secrets of the ancient craft.
