The air is filled with the aroma of toasted almonds, sausages and chocolate and St Nicholas hands out sweets to all the children. A stroll through the Christmas market by the Kuchlbauer tower will put a sparkle into the eyes of both young and old alike for the many thousands of tiny Christmas lights bestow an aura of a-thousand-and-one-nights on the tower that was built according to plans by Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
Both in and around the tower a great programme of events provides entertainment for all ages. There’s so much to see and do including live Christmas music on a number of stages, horse-drawn carriage rides, live crafts in the artisan market and a fabulous array of sumptuous Christmas delights that are not to be missed. The speciality highlight is, of course, Kuchlbauer Weißbier, that is offered here at the Christmas market alongside mulled wine and punch.
Throughout Advent guided tours of Kuchlbauer's Bierwelt take visitors around the brewery and up to the top of the Kuchlbauer tower followed by a beer tasting session with a half litre of beer and a pretzel included all for €12 per adult, €5 per child aged 6-15, €8 Euro for young adults or €26 for a family ticket.
Too tip: Make sure you have enough time to fit a swim in! The Bad Gögging spa with saunas and thermal bath facilities are just a stone’s throw away.
Admission to the Christmas market is free of charge.
