There are many Christmas markets. But only a few actually put romance above the commercial idea. In Ellmau (Tyrol) special attention was paid to the harmonious setting and "Ellmi's enchanting BERGADVENT" was staged where the fascination of the pre-Christmas season is best felt - directly in the snow-covered forest, high up on the mountain. In front of you is only the impressive evening scenery of the Wilder Kaiser and a starry winter sky.
On Friday and Saturday (from 4pm to 10pm), gingerbread and mulled wine scents lure you to the après-ski of the other, quieter kind. In the magic forest around the panorama restaurant "Bergkaiser" seven stations are to be hiked in a comfortable walk. Each individual Christmas hut fascinates in its own way.
"Engelsstimmen & Weihnachtsgeschichten" (Angel Voices & Christmas Stories) is the title of a station. At the next stop, visitors will find Christmas tree decorations and children's Christmas trees from times long past. It is clear that food and drink along the torch-lined BERGADVENT path must not be neglected; but here, too, the organisers do not forget in their offer that everything should revolve around an authentic pre-Christmas period.
The "high altitude character" of the Ellmauer BERGADVENT doesn't have to scare anyone either, as the ultra-modern XLarge 10 gondola lift takes you comfortably to your destination and back to the valley.
