Hundreds of sparkling lights, contemplative music from the churches, christmassy aromas on the Chapelsquare: Advent is a very special time of year in Altötting. Every year during Advent, the Chapelsquare in Altötting transforms into a Christmas village, and the Altötting Christmas Market opens its doors. Culinary delights and handicraft items await visitors to the Altötting Christmas Market. The small, rustic huts invite you in to comfortably enjoy a mug of mulled wine and a cinnamon star.
The supporting programme for Advent in Altötting is comprised of lots of top-class concerts which get the visitors in the mood for the most wonderful time of the year with Christmas music.
Advent in Altötting is also characterized by the many nativity scenes that are on display in the pilgrimage city. As a very special highlight, visitors to Altötting during Advent can visit the large nativity scene exhibition of the Krippenfreunde Altötting e. V.
