A journey in Advent?
When it gets dark outside early and the cities present themselves in the romantic dress of light, then it is not far away – Advent. Moreover, so often the all-too-familiar pre-Christmas hustle and bustle comes along, which does not let you really enjoy the magic of this magical time.
That is why today we give you 5 good reasons why you should definitely travel this Advent:
1. The most beautiful Christmas markets
What is more beautiful than strolling through a snowy Christmas market? Colourful lights, the scent of cardamom and cinnamon and in the paper bag a few hot chestnuts. Pure childhood memories. The trip is especially beautiful if it is taken during a holiday. That is how Velden am Wörthersee transforms into an angel townwith an angel bakery, an angel post office, an angels slow train and a floating Advent wreath with 80,000 lights.
The Katschberg also smells of chestnuts, cinnamon and mulled wine. The Katschberg Advent trail enchants its visitors with a particularly intense and moving winter atmosphere. The lanterns, with which visitors embark on a journey of discovery, provide additional romance – and there is much to discover: themed barns, Christmas trees from various eras and a teddy bear workshop.
2. Time to relax
The pre-Christmas period – as beautiful as it is – can sometimes be quite demanding and stressful. What helps better than a few days of well-cared for relaxation? Soothing massages and extended saunas are balm for the soul and give strength and energy for the next Christmas party or a day on the congested shopping arcade … often a weekend is enough to get back in balance.
3. Christmas shopping in the city
Those who cannot get enough of the hustle and bustle of the pre-Christmas days spend it shopping. The lights of the city, the snowy panorama and the best gifts in the bag – just the idea makes the heart of so many fashion-conscious people beat noticeably faster. However, it does not always have to be London, New York or Paris. How about a weekend in Belgrade or Prague? The new trend cities are hip and wait around every corner with new secrets and trendy shops to explore. We do not even want to start with the pretty presents …
4. Deluxe family time out
Especially the little ones miss out in the bustle of the pre-Christmas time and the excitement and anticipation do the rest. Therefore, children are looking forward to time out in the middle of Advent. Exciting days with the whole family are here a welcome change. When tobogganing, building a snowman and ice skating, the waiting time for the Christ child feels much easier.
5. Something to remember …
No matter where you are in Advent, enjoy the time with family, friends and also with yourself. As the beautiful, unforgettable moments are what make the pre-Christmas time so magical …
