The market is inspired by the traditional Austrian Christmas markets and will bring us the spirit of the Christmas season with lots of attractions, amusements, events and concerts. The chalets will offer unique handmade gifts, Christmas decorations and toys, souvenirs, works of arts and crafts, seasonal goods, confectionery and culinary delights throughout the whole of December. In the Glühwein House everyone can try Mulled wine and Austrian wursts (sausages). There will also be a covered scene where various concerts and events will be held every day. And of course kids will be able post their letters to Santa until 24th December at the Christmas Post Office under the most majestic spruce in the park.
