Our Christkindl Market à la “Cittáslow”, with regional titbits, unique handicrafts and Christmas music is sure to awaken your Christmas spirit – enjoy Advent with all your senses!

Advent Walk through the Historic Old Town of Hartberg

Arrival by bus in the Europaplatz Square (formerly Kernstockplatz Square).

Easy 15-minute walk across the illuminated town park to the Hartberg Stadtmuseum. The traditional arts and crafts market in the museum is open as of 2 pm.

Then continue along the Kirchengasse Alley to the Christmas Magic Advent Market in Hartberg’s historic Hauptplatz Square set against the festive backdrop of the parish church baroque spire often considered one of Austria’s most beautiful and strikingly lit up for the occasion.

After a short pleasant walk through the festively illuminated pedestrian zone you reach the Rochusplatz Square where your bus awaits you.
