Salzburg Photos: Christmas Market at Domplatz
return to "winter photos"
The Salzburger Dom or Salzburg Cathedral
makes a great background for
all sorts of events - most importantly the Jedermann play during the
Festival in summer and the Salzburger Christkindlmarkt
Market) in the weeks from late November to Christmas. Goods for sale include all
sorts of local crafts, traditional snacks and Christmas ornaments as well as
drinks such as punch (a mix of tea and rum with spices) and Glühwein (mulled
wine). Some market stands sell more peculiar drinks, such as mulled cider (also
with spices such as cloves, cinnamon or sugar) and even mulled beer. After all,
Salzburg is closely tied to Bavarian culture and part of the Southern
German/Austrian/Bohemian "beer belt".
