Christmas Season in Graz { with travel VIDEO }

It’s that time of the year again. Finally, the Christmas magic is back, and with it, the Christmas markets and their nocturnal hustle and bustle. Take in the smell of roasted chestnuts, fancy holding a steaming cup of punch and mulled wine in your hands and why not, while in Styria, try some unique Schilcher mulled wine?!

Graz, by the way, also has a unique larger-than-life size Nativity Scene made entirely out of ice, a lovely little Nativity Scene Trail through the old town, a total of 14 Christmas markets and even a so-called Lumagica light show to watch and enjoy. Absolutely worth a visit.

For my part, I was particularly impressed by singing Christmas carols together. For a good 30 years now, Graz is home to the “Office for Christmas Carols“, a well-stocked contact point for all questions about Christmas carols, texts, melodies and customs. Every Wednesday before Christmas, public singing is offered there for free. Anyone can join and sing (along).

But it’s best you see – and listen – for yourself! 🙂
