Where magic lies in the mountain air

Discover the magic of the Katschberg Advent Trail! In the midst of snow-covered mountain landscapes, experience an authentic Advent adventure far away from kitsch and commercialism. Follow the path from one rustic hay barn to the next, accompanied by alpine horns and brass bands that will enchant you with Christmas music. Immerse yourself in the world of Advent songs in the singing hut, listen to the contemplative stories in the story hut and watch the shining eyes of children as they make teddy bears with angels. This magical pre-Christmas period is illuminated by numerous lanterns along the way, which together with the soft light in the snow create a warm atmosphere.

A time of brilliance and warmth

A 2.5 km winter hike takes you along the Wichtelweg from the Alpengasthof Bacher on the Katschberghöhe to the Pritzhütte, the starting point of the Advent Trail. The trail offers free tea stations, a Christmas labyrinth and an enchanting forest of lights. You can cover the distance to the Pritzhütte either on foot or by horse-drawn sleigh from Gasthof Bacher. The subsequent hike along the Katschberg Advent Trail is only possible on foot. A high-quality thermo mug makes it possible to enjoy freshly brewed tea at the wood-burning stoves along the way. These mugs are available at the start of the Advent Trail, at the Souvenir & Craft Hut and at the Katschberg Tourist Office.
