Winter arts & culture in Igls-Vill, Patsch and Ellbögen
Krampus parades in Igls and Patsch
For some terrifying, for others tradition. The Krampus are demon-like creatures from Alpine folklore that create a unique atmosphere as they parade through the streets of Igls and Patsch. Traditionally carved masks, elaborate costumes and heavy furs combined with the mythology behind the Krampus season turn these parades into celebrations.
Igler Art weekend
Igls is the home and source of inspiration for many artists and has therefore grown into a small mecca for craftsmanship and the extraordinary. “Igler Art” celebrates this creative culture on the third weekend in Advent. This weekend event attracts many artists and art collectors, as well as visitors who simply want to browse, admire and chat. Get to know the artists and enjoy the Christmas spirit and tranquillity in this charming village setting south of the Capital of the Alps.
“Christmas in the Mountains” on 23 December in Igls
The locals feverishly await the 23 December with great anticipation. The “Christmas in the Mountains” celebration has many highlights, including a parade where 200 angels, shepherds and animals accompany a sleigh carrying Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus. Every year, visitors and participants gather on village square with family and friends to sing Christmas carols by the Christmas tree, admire the live nativity scene and follow the parade.
A live nativity scene, Christmas songs performed by the Igls-Lans church choir and the Igls-Vill brass band, an address by the priest and a joint chorus of “Silent Night” – these are all special moments from the “Christmas in the Mountains” celebration in Igls.
Christmas Brass Band Concert in Ellbögen
Experience the sound of Christmas in Ellbögen on the fourth Sunday in Advent. Wonderful Christmas songs sound in every chapel throughout the parish and weave a cloud of music over the roofs and streets of the village. A magical experience that leads the local band from house to house and to all of the parish chapels.
