Christmas magic & romance of the mountains
The great opening ceremony
performed by the Bad Hindelanger christ child
All our visitors, big and small, can look forward with excitement and happy anticipation to a peaceful Christmas time on the first Friday of Advent when the Christmas Village officially opens. When the bells of the church tower ring out six times, the "Christkind" appears with an entourage of angels and with the white "top hat" men. The whole of the Christmas village is transformed into a world of fairy lights and fairytale magic.
