Schalten Sie einen Gang zurück und tauchen Sie ein in die romantische Atmosphäre der Christkindlstadt Steyr. Staunen Sie im 1. Österreichischen Weihnachtsmuseum für antiken Christbaumschmuck, besuchen Sie die Krippen in Christkindl, senden Sie Grüße an Ihre Lieben über das weltbekannte Postamt Christkindl und genießen Sie die weihnachtliche Stimmung beim Adventblasen am Stadtplatz.

24 November – 23 December 2017

After checking into your hotel room, a night watchman wearing traditional clothing and carrying a halberd and lantern accompanies you through the wintery Steyr, even up to the top of the parish church spire – magnificent view guaranteed!

9:00 am Christkindl Pilgrimage Place
Visit the unique Mechanical Nativity Scene and Pöttmesser Nativity Scene, one of the largest nativity scenes in the world, followed by a visit to the Christkindl Pilgrimage Church including guided tour. From the Christmas Post Office you can send Christmas greetings with the town’s coveted stamp motive to your loved ones at home.
Afterwards visit the exhibition Christmas in the Castle – delightful ambience, exclusive, reflective and artsy.
Enjoy the Christmas flair drinking a mug of hot cider at the Advent market in the old town or at the Christkindl Market on the Promenade.

TIP: Get in the mood for Christmas with local wind ensembles playing traditional Advent music.

Do not miss a trip on the Museum Train. After buckling up, embark on a journey through the Advent Season – past show cases up to the angels’ workshop in the attic, where hundreds of angels are preparing for Christmas.
