The Garstner Advent, a festive market that has been warming the hearts of visitors since 1977, traditionally takes place on the first two weekends of Advent. This event shapes the pre-Christmas period in Garsten, a place known for its picturesque scenery and historical significance..

The market itself is held in the town's central square, surrounded by the impressive backdrop of the baroque collegiate church, which gives it a unique atmosphere. This historic church, an architectural masterpiece, forms the perfect setting for the festive celebrations and is a reason why the Garstner Advent is so special.

The market stalls offer visitors a variety of traditional delicacies and handmade goods. These range from regional specialties to crafts that reflect the local culture and craftsmanship.

A distinctive feature of the Garstner Advent is the combination of traditional and modern elements, creating a harmonious balance between history and the present. Visitors can embark on a journey through local traditions, from the culinary delights on offer to the unique crafts.

The culinary highlights of the market include traditional dishes and drinks typical of the region. These include hearty treats as well as sweet delicacies, complemented by warm beverages that are especially welcome in the cold season.
