Mayrhofner Advent

12th Mayrhofner Advent at the Forest Festival Area 2023

Gentle melodies and Christmas ambience

Relaxation, peace, quiet. Just take a deep, satisfying breath and enjoy. That is exactly what the traditional Mayrhofner Advent in the Tyrolean Zillertal Valley offers. You will search in vain for gaudy decorations and annoying Christmas jingles. Well away from commercialism and noise, you can feel the true spirit of Christmas in Mayrhofen and Hippach, experience local customs and savour joyful anticipation for the fast-approaching Christmas Eve.

Local customs are put in the spotlight and there is no room for Santa Claus here. Because the bringer of gifts and an important part of Tyrolean tradition has always been the baby Jesus in this part of the world.

Mayrhofner Advent at the Forest Festival Area is the perfect alternative to commercialised Christmas markets and guarantees superior quality standards. Exquisite local products to eat and drink are offered at the many beautifully decorated stalls, where you can treat yourself to some time-out next to a romantic open fire.

A hand-tied Advent wreath with a diameter of 3.5 metres is a real eye-catcher and will bathe the Mayrhofner Advent in soft light.


Blacksmith Demonstration
Special attention is paid to the arts and crafts again this year. The Kollreider family will demonstrate the craft of forging iron in its original form.
Kröll’s Christmas Bakery
Children can get creative at Kröll’s Christmas Cookie Corner, where angel’s wings are waiting to be decorated.
Contemplative Sounds
Mayrhofner Advent is somewhat different. Quaint, original, with no public address systems or “Silent Night” screeching from the loudspeakers. Soothing, genuine folk music ensures visitors enjoy a few hours of pleasant contemplation.
Christmas Post Office
Children can write their own letter to the Christ Child and post it in the Christkindlpostbox.
