The current area of low pressure will leave us! The cloudy remnants will clear during the morning and we will get a few hours of bright and clear weather. Already by the afternoon, new clouds will build and probably produce some showers.
During the next few days it will be warm, but with the air becoming quite sultry at times occasional thunderstorms may occur, especially in the late afternoon and evening.
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.
