Advent in the Kaunertal

A winter wonderland for very special moments

Christmas in the mountains

This Tyrolean winter wonderland will enchant you!

The entire Kaunertal nature park and glacier region gets into the festive spirit the four weekends leading up to Christmas. And not just the Christmas market in Feichten; there are other festive season highlights to check out.

Attend traditional carol singing in Kaltenbrunn or the Christmas market at Kaunergrat Nature Park. Whichever you choose, there's never any reason to be bored as you wait for Christmas!

A mountain Christmas, just what the doctor ordered

Christmas in the Kaunertal returns each year in a very special way. The people, animals, and plants of the valley are at rest. The mountain and valley are wrapped in soft white snow and the stars sparkle on clear nights. Wrapped in layers, though, you'll be ready to go from stand to stand at the Christmas market, with a steaming cup of mulled wine or grog and a large portion of hot chestnuts. Could there be anything more beautiful?

Festive times at the Kaunertal Christmas market

There's a buzz of excitement and a sweet smell on the village square that announce that Christmas is just around the corner in Feichten with traditional craftsmanship and Tyrolean delicacies as far as the eye can see. You can also look forward to a varied programme for the festive season:

  • St Nicholas Parade
  • Fairytale Walk
  • alpacas to stroke
  • horse-drawn carriage rides through the snowy Kaunertal
  • A chance to send a letter to the Christ child
  • Christmas brass

Good to know: the most famous Christmas market in the Kaunertal takes place on the four Saturdays before Christmas and the Thursday after Christmas. From 16:00 to 21:00, enjoy the best time of the year in an incomparable setting.

How to travel to Feichten's village square

Want to visit the Christmas market in Feichten and aren't sure how exactly to get there? The village square is located in the centre of the village, next to the Kaunertal elementary school and Haus Pfiffikus. The best place to park your car would be at the edge of the village or at the Quellalpin swimming pool. A little hint: just follow the sweet scent and the laughter of happy children. They'll take you straight to the market without fail!

Feel the magic of yesteryear

Christmas market at the Kaunertal Nature Park Museum

Things get festive at Piller Sattel and the Gachenblick, home to the Kaunergrat Nature Park Museum, which attracts visitors with its own Christmas market. The famous Christmas carol "Silent night," composed not far away from here, really applies to this magical place. If you like the silence of winter, you will love this Christmas market in the Kaunertal! 

Taste local delicacies and marvel at traditional handicrafts. You have the chance to do so on two Advent Sundays, more specifically 2nd and 4th Sunday in Advent, starting at 14:00. Christmas sounds from various choirs and music groups add to the festive atmosphere.

Big surprise for the little ones: the elves’ workshop is also open from 14:00 to 17:00

Christmas carols at the Kaltenbrunn pilgrimage church

Maybe not quite so quiet, but just as contemplative is the traditional carol sing in Kaltenbrunn. Well-known melodies will surely get the last Scrooge to give into the festive spirit. The unique atmosphere in the pilgrimage church dedicated to the Assumption of Mary certainly helps. You'll want to be sure to put this heavenly concert on your agenda for a pre-Christmas visit to this Tyrolean wonderland.

As you can see, the festive season in Tyrol's Kaunertal is truly special! And you definitely will not want to miss the traditional carol sing on the first Sunday of Advent. Does the Christmas season mean it's time to hit the slopes? Learn more about the glacier and the valley's ski areas.

Staying for New Year's?

Take a look at the events of the Tyrolean nature park and glacier region around Christmas and New Year. You will also be interested in the current weekly events calendar for the Kaunertal as well as tips for winter evening entertainment. A visit to the Kaunergrat Nature Park is an excellent idea, especially in winter!

Um unseren Gästen die Bedeutung, Nachhaltigkeit und Schönheit der Wiesen in den Alpen näher zu bringen, wird der Juni im Tiroler Oberland zum „Wiesenmonat“ erklärt. Gäste können an geführten Wanderungen zum Thema Wiesen, an Führungen in Betrieben und auf Almen teilnehmen und Landwirte auf deren Höfen besuchen. Die Wiesen in den Alpen sind etwas Besonderes, vor allem im Frühsommer, wenn die zahlreichen Kräuter und bunte Blumen blühen. Das Wiesenmonat endet mit dem Wiesenfest, bei dem es neben Musik und zahlreichen Ständen von regionalen Produzenten auch einen Infos zur Insekten - und Pflanzenbestimmung geben wird.
