Enjoy Tirols Hochplateau in a contemplative way
Advent & Christmas Markets in the Region Seefeld
Atmospheric Advent markets, Christmas concerts and contemplative chapel hikes: In the unique winter atmosphere of the Seefeld region, the most contemplative time of the year becomes a very special experience.
The Seefeld region is home to three of the most beautiful Tyrolean Christmas markets in Scharnitz, Leutasch and Seefeld. With seasonal delicacies, handmade delicacies and authentic Tyrolean conviviality.
Gala concerts by international stars enchant the wintry high plateau during the Klingender Advent festival, while at the Leutasch Chapel Advent you can visit the smallest churches in the high valley by torchlight with local songs.
Light installations - Lichterpark Seefeld
From the beginning of November, the Kurpark Seefeld shines with atmospheric light installations: Stars twinkle in the trees, the Casino Tower glitters festively and a glowing whale swims its laps in the pond, while just a few meters away you can try your hand at interactive Match 4. As the Christmas market in the historic town center is also just around the corner, it makes for particularly beautiful walks through the snow-covered Seefeld. And because the delicacies, stores and stalls up here are so inviting to taste, the use of buses and regional trains is highly recommended.

Advent in Tirol: Seven christmas markets focussing on the authentic tirolean customs
Seven Christmas markets have joined forces under the umbrella brand of "Advent in Tirol" to focus on authentic Tirolean customs, far removed from the hype and kitsch of commercial festive affairs.
As soon as the first snowflakes start to fall, little market stalls open their doors and hatches, while the scent of hot chestnuts, gingerbread and mulled wine swirls through the air, signalling the start of the magical season of Tirol’s Christmas markets.
One thing is particularly important to the seven markets that have joined forces under the banner of "Advent in Tirol" (Achensee, Hall in Tirol, Innsbruck, Kufstein, Rattenberg, Seefeld and St. Johann in Tirol): to focus on Tirolean customs and not on kitschy consumerism, which has nothing at all to do with true Christmas tradition. Bearing this in mind, the "Advent in Tirol" markets have committed themselves to uniform quality criteria, which range from the visual appearance of a market, to the assortment of sales stalls and the cultural supporting programme. Sustainability is another priority at the nine ”Advent in Tirol” markets, where every effort is made to avoid using plastic or other artificial materials. Prefabricated music is also taboo. The Advent period of quiet reflection is celebrated instead with traditional horn blowers and carol singers.
