Advent market

A varied programme of events awaits you at our in-house Advent market. Every Thursday in December, various exhibitors are available for you in our house bar (the Alchemist) from 20.00 - 22.00 hrs. Accompanied by live Christmas music, you can feast on our homemade bacon plums, chestnuts & Christmas biscuits and shop for local Christmas gifts along the way.

Snowshoe hike

Our active programme is not neglected in the Advent season either. Accompanied by our mountain guides, you can leave your worries behind you on a guided snowshoe hike and enjoy nature and the heavenly snow to the full. Of course, you can also go on a snowshoe hike on your own and discover natural scenery for yourself. Our staff will certainly be happy to give you a few tips on your discovery at the snowshoe rental.

Alpaca lantern hike & torchlight hike

Our alpacas are also in the Christmas spirit - the alpaca lantern walks are a unique experience for both children and adults. But that is not all. Another part of the programme is our annual torchlight hike from the Knapplhütte to the Höflehner Nature and Wellness Hotel. In an idyllic winter landscape, unforgettable impressions await you in the atmospheric and romantic glow of the torches.

Talbach Advent market & Christmas parlour music

If you haven't experienced an Austrian Advent market yet, we'll be happy to take you to the atmospheric Christmas market"Advent am Talbach". Experience local artists on the Advent stage or a great children's programme with mini carousel and Christkindl workshop. Once back at the hotel, you can then enjoy a mulled wine while listening to Christmas parlour music or taste local wines with our top winemakers.
