The Christmas market is situated in the old town on Mozartplatz and Residenzplatz. Besides the traditional drink and food stands you can find a lot of possibilities for Christmas shopping. The market is not crowded like in Vienna. It is very cozy and you should...More

Took the train from Munich to visit the Christmas markets, such a pretty place, the main street leading to the market square looked amazing with all the fairy lights, the food was the best we've tried.. Plenty to see and do in the area

We took the train from Munich Germany to Salzburg Austria. The Salzburg Christmas Market was awesome. We arrived at noon with the church bells ringing. There was wine, cheeses, sausages, and all kinds of Christmas things to buy. We had a wonderful afternoon in Salzburg....More

I visited this place 12 years ago (in the summer) and again 8 years ago in the autumn and was so happy to visit again and make tough shopping choices. But it is not the same store. Not only in terms of now-non-existing service (the...More

I went to Salzburg in September, 2017 for my 60th birthday. While there, I purposely planned to purchase the hand painted eggs at this store. I loaded up my crates and spent $478.83 US (approx. 400 euro) for gifts for my family and myself--Three seasons--Halloween,...More

This is the one place I had been looking forward to in Salzburg! A majority of the items are egg ornaments - Christmas, Easter, etc. Bought many for me (and for gifts!) Another highlight is that they were one of the few places open on...More

Their eggs are precariously set around the store and even the slightest touch can spill them on to the floor. You will be fully responsible to pay for the broken eggs at a minimum 8€ a pop. They have no incentive to secure the eggs...More

The shop is very nice and attracts a lot of tourists but be careful how you move inside. The eggs are badly arranged and we have paid 200 euros because my son inadvertently touched a corner of the table. The store will also be insured...More

We will be in Salzburg Christmas 2008. We are anxious to learn of restaurants where we can book Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meals in advance before leaving England.

Most major hotels will have dining available - as you know reservations a must Insert " Christmas restaurants " in the search box here - some discussions and recommendations there from prior years. You can check with the Tourist Office too- they will most probably have a list of openings closer to the holiday. Salzburg experts will probably add recommendations too.
