Winter in Austria’s “Bucklige Welt”

Enjoy the quietest time of the year among the 1000 hills

In winter, there is a very special atmosphere here. A white blanket descends over the “Buckln”, footsteps crunch in the powdery light snow, the snowflakes dance through the air and everything suddenly becomes very quiet.

Sharing Advent in Austria’s “Bucklige Welt” invites you to escape the pre-Christmas hustle and bustle and enjoy the anticipation of the great festival together with family and friends. The atmospheric Advent markets offer traditional handicrafts, folk entertainment and regional specialities. A truly special ambience, mulled cider warming body and soul and delicious baked goods all add to the Christmas spirit.

Breathe fresh winter air

However, if you really want to let off steam in the fresh winter air, grab your ice skates, cross-country skis or simply a toboggan – this is another way to explore Austria’s “Bucklige Welt”. And there’s one thing you can easily be sure of here: whizzing down one of the 1000 hills on a toboggan is not just for kids!

Winter hiking

Quiet and relaxing, and with breathtaking views: this is how the winter hiking trails in Austria’s “Bucklige Welt” should be enjoyed!
