White Christmas dreams are a reality in Kitzbühel, its high altitude means it gets plenty of snow, so it’s very much the darling of the wintersports set. From Wednesday till Sunday during December you can ski in the morning and do your Christmas shopping in the evening – which in this part of the world is what a traditional Christmas is all about – and at this market you know the alpine chalet feel is genuine.

In Kitzbühel St. Nicholas’s Day is celebrated on the 6th of December and he comes into town the day before laden with gifts to give out to children and followed by a fun sounding procession.

Another local highlight is a nativity scene made from ice and snow.

Kitzbühel Christmas Market

Popular as a ski resort town, Kitzbühel also hosts a lively Christmas market each winter. It’s no surprise both children and adults flock to this market for the family-oriented activities it offers. One of the market’s favourite traditions is the one-of-a-kind St. Nicholas procession - every 5th of December, a band of mischievous devils frolics through the town, enthralling the crowd and signifying the start of Advent season.

While many winter tourists may visit Kitzbühel for the wintersports, during advent they also get the opportunity to visit the petting zoo, attend the holiday singing and acting performances, and experience Katharinenkirche’s famed glockenspiel.
