Altötting  set in the heart of Bavaria, invites you back once again to the traditional Christmas market set in the magnificent backdrop of the Barroque Kapellplatz. The festively decorated centerpiece of Altötting is wonderfully enhanced with a cup of Gluhwein and some delicious Christmas biscuits, and among the many artfully crafted products you will find the ideal festive gift. Altötting has a 400 year tradition of producing beautifully carved wooden crib figures which can be seen on the Christmas market stalls and surrounding shop windows.

‘Blassen’ (Trumpeter)ensembles and Choirs on the market stage provide a mood of contemplation and bring the sound of Advent to the pilgrimage town , as well as the daily visit of Saint Nicolaus at 17 o’clock.

The Altöttinger Advent singers provide traditional ‘Alpenland‘ musical accompaniment  a tradition which dates back 50 years. In the splendidly decorated Basilica of St Anna, you will be welcomed by the vocal and instrumental group from Altötting, Salzburg and the Bavarian Oberland, as well as the host of the Altötting song library.


There are parking lots with sanitary facilities not far from the Kapellplatz in the Griesstrasse and on the Dultplatz
