With over 1,000 “Krampus” and “Perchte”, wolf-men and witches, the largest “Krampus” parade in Austria moves through the streets and squares of Klagenfurt. The sinister figures are deeply anchored in the traditions of the Alpine region and represent the sinister side of the cold season. Yet once the heavy wooden masks are taken off, the faces underneath will join you for a jolly drink at one of the Christmas stalls in the city.
