First Christkindl procession in Innsbruck in 1934
Innsbruck’s first Christkindl procession is also down to the nobility. Introduced by Countess Julia Trapp in 1934, the procession took place – briefly interrupted during the Second World War – until the 1980s in the city centre. The idea of the Christkindl procession was revived in 2004. Today, it is part and parcel of “Advent in Tyrol”, just like the Innsbruck Christmas markets that take place during the Christmas in the Mountains celebrations.
