Shady figures

Shaggy-looking figures that parade through the streets rattling loudly and grimacing. The Krampus and Perchten runs have become an integral part of Advent in Tyrol.A ‘Krampuslauf’ or ’Perchtenlauf ’is an unforgettable experience and as much a part of Innsbruck Christmas in the Mountains as the famous Christmas markets or the wonderful Advent concert. Experience this extraordinary custom in Innsbruck from late November until early December. By the way, Perchten are traditional figures from a custom dating back to pagan times. The stronghold of the custom mainly lies in the area of the Austrian Eastern Alps.
