Advent and Christmas Markets 2022

Picturesque Christmas time in Vorarlberg

From the beginning of December until Christmas, magical Christmas Markets enchant the cities of Bregenz, Dornbirn, Feldkirch and Bludenz and some villages in Vorarlberg’s regions. In the village of Schwarzenberg in Bregenzerwald, Advent offers many events and in Brandnertal, people get in the mood for the Christmas season with markets and music. Some places have decided not to hold a market in the traditional sense this year, but Christmas atmosphere, various actions and lots of lights enchant the towns and villages in Vorarlberg and invite you to stroll and marvel!

  • Christmas Market in Bregenz
    From 15 November to 23 December, the Kornmarktplatz becomes the central venue of the Bregenz Christmas Market. A Christmas village is created here every year during Advent, with all kinds of culinary delights in separate gastronomy zones and traditional handicrafts. Young visitors can also enter the magic of the pre-Christmas season here. The traditional Christmas market in Bregenz’s upper town has been cancelled. The living nativity scene at Leutbühel invites visitors until January 6.
