Waiting for Christmas in Salzburger Sportwelt is shortened with traditional events and Christmas markets. St. Nicholas and his devils go from house to house, as do the Carol singers. Advent wreaths abound, Christmas biscuits baked and nativity scenes displaye. On Advent hikes, horse-drawn sleigh rides and listening to brass music you capture the feeling of "Silent Night, Holy Night!". The author of the lyrics of this famous Christmas carol, Joseph Mohr, lived for many years in Wagrain, where a museum is dedicated to him and his work.
