Christmas markets

Christmas markets have a long tradition in the Tyrol. Many villages and communities have small Christmas markets with special events and their own particular blend of features.

Innsbruck’s Christmas in the mountains begins in mid-November and continues through to the start of January. There are five Christmas markets spread across the city:

  • The market in the Old Town, featuring the large Christmas tree, the tower trumpeters and the fairy tale alley in front of the Golden Roof
  • The market at Marktplatz, featuring a carousel, the ‘Kasperltheater’ puppet show and alternative handicrafts
  • The modern market on Maria-Theresien-Strasse, featuring an avenue lined with illuminated trees
  • The small Hungerburg Christmas market, featuring a view of the city
  • The tranquil market at the Wiltener Platzl square, which is particularly popular with the locals

The markets are accompanied by a programme of events featuring music, traditional processions, performances and much more besides.
