Christmas Markets in Burgenland 2022

The Austrian province of Burgenland features three Christmas markets held at castles owned by the Esterházy family during the Advent period.

The Advent market at Forchtenstein Castle, built in the 15th century, will be open to visitors on the first weekend of Advent, from 25 to 27 November 2022. Visitors can reach the stalls via the atmospherically illuminated drawbridge. Producers from Burgenland and neighbouring regions offer high-quality handicrafts and warming treats.

The Renaissance grounds of Lackenbach Castle will be ablaze with Christmas flair from 02 to 04 December 2022. Visitors can enjoy demonstrations of traditional handicrafts and choose from a variety of selected products in the decorated interior rooms.

The state rooms and courtyard of the baroque Esterházy Palace in Eisenstadt will be the backdrop for the Advent Market from 8 to 11 December 2022. Some 50 exhibitors will offer gifts and culinary treats. Visitors can also take the opportunity to view the current exhibitions in the castle.
