Traunsee Castle Advent

The Advent Market in the Ort Land and Lake Castle with its unique handicraft exhibitions delights visitors every year during the pre-Christmas season.
From traditional horseshoe blacksmiths, basket weavers, wood turners to modern welding and blacksmithing art and exceptional motor saw carvings – the Castle Advent offers not only artistic exhibits but also shows how these artistic gems are made!

With so many exhibitors giving live demonstrations of their craft, the Traunsee Castle Advent is sure to captivate young and old alike.
In addition to the traditional art and craftworks presented by select exhibitors, the unique lake illumination, charming floating nativity scene and the lighting decorations of the 123 m long bridge connecting the castle on land to the lake castle whisk you away into an alluringly beautiful Christmas wonderland – incomparable to anything you will find elsewhere.

The Christkindl also comes to visit and will make the children’s hearts leap for joy!
