All good things come in threes, so they say. But in Innsbruck they come in sixes! At least as far as Innsbruck's "Christmas in the Mountains" (Bergweihnacht) is concerned. Six different Christmas markets each with its own character and special features give you the perfect opportunity to linger and explore. The tradition started in 1973 with the traditional market outside the Golden Roof. The Family Market on the market square has a homely atmosphere and lots of exciting attractions for children. The Modern Market on Maria-Theresien-Strasse, Innsbruck's splendid main avenue, has a very special vibe with sparkling tree lights and modern lighting design. The Panorama Market on the Hungerburg with fantastic views of Innsbruck is simply irresistible, whilst the magic of Christmas on Wiltener Platzl includes genuine arts and crafts, outstanding food and a select cultural programme. But if you’d like to escape all the pre-Christmas hustle and bustle and enjoy a moment or two of quiet reflection, head for Hans-Brenner-Platz square in the St. Nikolaus district. To enjoy a truly comprehensive Christmas experience, why not visit all six markets!
