Christmas in Austria – Christmas Ideas
Christmas is not too far off and this is the time to start thinking of Christmas presents and plan any Christmas holiday travel activities.
Europe is a great place to be in at Christmas time and if you’re planning on a holiday in Austria, consider doing something a little different.
While you’re at it, why not surprise your loved ones with a Christmas gift that will certainly delight them. Yes, forget the usual ties, perfumes, chocolates etc.!
Here are a few Christmas travel gift ideas:
Christmas Eve at Weikersdorf Castle
Not far from Vienna, you can experience a traditional Austrian Christmas Eve celebration which the whole family will love! Get into the yule time spirit, with a White Christmas in the beautiful Austrian alps.
Christmas Eve at the Castle of Weikersdorf in Baden regularly sells out weeks in advance, so you’ll need to book ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
Salzburg Christmas Eve Tour to the Silent Night Chapel
Travel through the foothills of the Austrian Alps, along the Salzach river valley to Oberndorf, where you will have the opportunity to take part in a touching Christmas celebration in the Silent Night Chapel.
Christmas Horse Drawn Sleigh Ride from Salzburg
Your full day winter excursion takes you along the Salzach river valley past many of Austria’s ski resorts. Near Schladming, location of the 1982 Ski World Championships, you will ascend up to the “Steirische Ramsau” 3,281 feet (1,000 meters) above sea level at the base of one of the Alpine glacier massifs – the Dachstein.
