Glittering lights illuminate the winter darkness.
A pleasant sweetness floats in the air. The fragrances of baked apples and mulled wine mix with frankincense and freshly roasted almonds. From somewhere far away, the sounds of a soft Carinthian melody reach the ears, together with the happy laughter of the children who flit from stall to stall. The eyes are all aglow. The heart beats faster. Happy. Fulfilled.
A cosy warmth spreads. You take a deep breath. Christmas is here. Christmas in Klagenfurt am Wörthersee.
Let yourself be charmed by the magic of Advent and the cosy Christmas atmosphere, when Austria’s southernmost provincial capital becomes the Christmas capital at Lake Wörthersee on 17th November. You will be welcomed at four different special locations between the eastern bay of the lake and Domplatz, with thousands of lights throughout the city and festively decorated stalls and shops in the city centre.
Leave the hectic pace of day-to-day life behind you. Immerse yourself with us in a charming Christmas world. Klagenfurt looks forward to seeing you!
