Slide Nr 8
Salzburg, Austria — When a city can trace its holiday traditions to the 15th century, you know it’s the real deal. Such is the case with charming Salzburg, which never looks better than during the weeks leading up to Christmas with a fresh dusting of snow. By then, the Christkindlmarkt stalls have returned to the city’s historic centre, and Hellbrunn Palace has been transformed into a winter wonderland, Hellbrunn Advent Magic. This year Salzburg is celebrating the 200th anniversary of “Silent Night,” which was penned in a small town in the region. [Photo: www.christkindlmarkt.co.at, Salzburg]
