Torch dance in front of the Ottoburg
For the Feast of Saint Lucia, the artful dancers from Innsbruck's Town and Country Traditional Costume Society bring brilliant firelight to the dark winter night.
Christmas Market in Innsbruck's Old Town
What is arguably the city’s most traditional Christmas market boasts an attractive setting surrounded by medieval houses in Innsbruck’s Old Town. Beneath the Christmas tree bedecked with lights there are rows of 70 rustic Christmas stalls. The traditions of popular art are very much alive and well at the Christmas market, with the fragrant aroma of almonds, lovingly carved nativity figurines and brightly coloured felt hats. Take a stroll through the “Märchengasse” Fairy Tale Alley or enjoy a glass of spicy glühwein on the viewing platform and you’ll get a powerful sense of homeland in all its many facets, accompanied by the sounds of the tower trumpeters at the Golden Roof.
