During the Advent season, markets spring up on the medieval squares, the smell of punch and gingerbread wafts through the cold air, and lights twinkle around the picturesque Altstadt (Salzburg Old Town).
This independent package includes two nights of 4-star accommodation in a centrally located hotel, as well as a ride in a traditional horse-drawn carriage and a Christkindl-Pass voucher book, which entitles you to free food at Salzburg Christmas Market (Christkindlmarkt), as well as a chocolate bar, a hot drink, a decoration or ornament, a mug and a discount on a Christmas CD. The horse-drawn carriage ride is described on Day 2, but it can be taken on any day, depending on your preference.
