Christkindl Post Office

Already for the 65th time the A-4411 Christkindl Post Office opens its doors.

In the beginning (1950), this popular postmark was stamped on about 42,000 letters and cards. Interest increased and today 16 employees are needed to hand stamp the letters and cards arriving from all over the world. Last season already 2 million letters and cards were dispatched from the Christkindl Post Office at the Hotel & Restaurant Christkindlwirt.

Send your post via the Christkindl Christmas post office!


For the hand-stamped postmark:
Paste a postmark and the golden “Via Christkindl“ sticker on each letter (available for € 0.68 at every post office in Austria).

For the machine-stamped postmark:
Put your stamped Christmas post into a prepaid envelope and send it to the Christkindl post office 4411.

From outside Austria
Put your unstamped Christmas post into a prepaid envelope addressed to the Christkindl post office A-4411. Please enclose one international reply coupon per letter/card (available at every post office).

Children’s letters to the Christ child

Letters sent by children from all over the world to the Christ child are forwarded to the Christkindl Christmas post office where they are answered by standardised letters.

In order to make it easier for the Christ child to answer their letters, children in Austria are requested to enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope and children writing from outside Austria a self-addressed, unstamped envelope and an international reply coupon with their letters.
