Christmas market hopping with Peter Juhre
Travelling with private chauffeur and Christmas market insider Peter, you discover several traditional Christmas markets around Berchtesgaden on one afternoon. There are also a few smaller and quieter markets aside from the larger and more popular ones that Peter loves to drive to. The selections includes the Christmas markets in Berchtesgaden and Reichenhall plus the lovely markets at Lake Wolfgang, in Hellbrunn’s castle courtyard, Gutshof Glanegg, Waldbad Anif, Salzburg’s historic city centre and on Hohenwerfen Castle in the neighbouring province of Salzburg.
The smaller Christmas markets in particular offer products by local artists and craftsmen. Wood carvings, ceramics, artfully designed Christmas tree decorations, self-knitted stuff made from sheep wool, and marmalades are among the presents you should take home. Christmas carols by brass musicians and vocal groups, warm candlelight and spicy mulled wine help to create the right Advent market atmosphere. Peter ensures a safe journey home and sadly has to miss out on his mulled wine!
