While Klagenfurt is the perfect place for a mulled wine opening with a fairytale atmosphere and one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in the Alps-Adriatic region, Advent in Velden is a feel-good place for angels young and old and enchants the shores of Lake Wörthersee with glittering stars and a floating Advent wreath. Those who prefer things more contemplative should pay a visit to the “Stiller Advent” event in Pörtschach. A small chalet village directly on the lakeside promenade. On the other side of Lake Wörthersee, on the southern shore, the romantic church market on the Maria Wörth peninsula awaits you this Advent. The Pyramidenkogel lookout tower lures you into Advent above the clouds. The landmark of the Wörthersee region, 100 metres tall and visible for miles around, illuminates the sky in a special way. At the foot of the tower, visitors will find an atmospheric Advent market with exceptional craftsmen and musical accompaniment. The boats of the Wörthersee Schifffahrt shipping company, decked out in pre-Christmas lights, bring you to all these places on Lake Wörthersee.
Villach presents itself as a Christmas portal for the eyes, ears and palate: Concerts, attractions for young and old, sparkling Old Town lanes and an Advent market with many regional producers, make the Christmas magic in the “City in the Light” simply perfect.
