15 Seasonal Events With A Twist.
Krampusnacht, Klagenfurt (Austria), 25 November – You may have heard of St. Nicholas, who, in many parts of Central Europe, comes around on 6 December to bestow good children with treats and gifts. Unfortunately, he’s often accompanied by his counterpart, a hairy demon with giant horns, razor teeth and eyes of burning coal who kidnaps naughty little ones. In many Alpine towns today, the Krampus gets his own day to run wild, and in Klagenfurt, things tend to go Krampus-crazy with more than 1,000 costumed locals and visitors parading through the streets and partying into the night. visitklagenfurt.at
