Forecasters particularly like their job when it comes to forecasting the impact an area of high pressure has on our weather! Only in the morning will some patches of ground mist and low stratus be evident. They will then be the victim of the warm September sun allowing fantastic weather for the rest of the day.
On Saturday, the beautiful weather conditions will remain! Only in the evening will a few clouds move in. They will persist on Sunday and Monday, but they will do no harm.
In the Tyrol the traditional Christmas focuses on the crib. Figurines made of wood, wax, clay or cardboard are placed against a backcloth of imaginary scenery and are moved around to correspond to the various scenes described in the Bible.
Something truly special: the Jaufenthaler nativity scene
You can practically feel the spirit of Christmas on the market square in Innsbruck where a mechanical nativity scene delights visitors with free performances every day. The Jaufenthaler nativity scene was donated as a gift to all children and bears the name of its former owner. The technical wonder creates a festive atmosphere that builds excitement in the run up to Christmas. 15 motors move 28 figures, drive a waterfall and make the church bells ring. A Christmas world comes to life: open daily from December until 6 January, performances from 4 pm to 7 pm. Performances last approx. 25 minutes.
