In the time before Christmas, the Mur Valley is all quiet and romantic and offers atmospheric experiences everywhere. The best example is the Advent Village that is set up around the large natural swimming pond in the park of Hotel G’Schlössl Murtal.
A short walk through the park of Hotel G’Schlössl Murtal will get you in the mood for spending a few hours with friends or family. The lake is lined with many booths and the scent of chestnuts, venison meat loaf, roasted almonds, baked apples, punch and many other Styrian delicacies is in the air. And of course, atmospheric Christmas music will get you in the mood for the big day.
Handicrafts, amazing tidbits and a great atmosphere at the natural pond
Don't expect to find kitsch here! Our Advent Village will remind you how the quietest time of the year used to be celebrated. With regional handicrafts wherever you go! With great tidbits and a small paradise for our youngest guests – where the time before Christmas is a particularly magical one.
Expect to see a few new things this year
For instance, we will erect a dedicated Advent Lodge in which you can warm yourself up on cold days. Complete with traditional music every Saturday from 7.00 pm.
Also new: A Krampus parade on Saturday, 7 December 2019 from 5.00 pm!
We also have a special programme for children: Every Saturday afternoon, from 3.00 to 5.00 pm, your little ones are invited to make cute bracelets from gemstone splinters provided by Edelsteine Krampl. The good-natured Noriker horses from the Deutinger Noriker stud in Lind bei Spielberg are eagerly waiting to take your kids for a horse and cart ride. Another highlight are the animals of the Advent Village’s petting zoo. By the way: On Sunday, 8 December 2019, they can meet Santa Clause from 5.00 pm!
Another thing about the horse-drawn carriages: The horses also take adults for a ride. Every Sunday from 3.00 to 5.00 pm.
