In St Anton am Arlberg the pre-Christmas season in at its most enchanting: During the first four weekends of December, ‘Magic of Advent in the Park’ is a tranquil and contemplative Christmas theme trail for all ages.

There are several fires in the park as well as themed areas that invite one to linger to linger and take part. The Christmas theme trail takes visitors past oversized silhouettes and a sea of lit candles to the ‘Christmas photo corner’ where everyone can make their own Christmas cards. In the afternoon, children are invited to join craft sessions in the elves’ workshop. For a taste of Tyrolean Christmas past, come to the rustic cabin in the woods where you can hear Christmas stories and poems being told in the local dialect. A traditional Austrian Advent would be quite unimaginable without Christmas cookies, and every afternoon their tantalising fragrance pervades the museum of local history the local baker shows children how to bake using traditional recipes.

The life-size nativity scene at the Mühltobel gorge and the sound of brass bands create a truly special festive atmosphere, while away from the park, guests can enjoy a completely different world that includes the traditional Christmas market in St Anton and the many events in the surrounding communities of Pettneu, Flirsch and Strengen.
