✨ Visit the most beautiful Advent market in Salzburg! The lovingly decorated Christmas wonderland awaits you at the St. Peter Abbey Culinary Centre.



It was Christmas Eve in 1818 when soft voices were heard near Mozart’s birthplace of Salzburg, singing words that continue to enthral today, more than 200 years after they were first sung: ‘Silent night, holy night …’

The dulcet tones of this unmistakable Christmas carol accompany the festive season at St. Peter Stiftskulinarium. In this historic setting, with its long tradition of refined taste, you can experience the season of joy and goodwill at its best. Situated in the heart of Salzburg’s old town and set amidst historic abbey walls, it conjures up an atmosphere of peace and joy.

Lovingly decorated and glowing in the gentle candlelight, our romantic Willibaldarkaden courtyard simply exudes festive spirit. The fragrance of grand Christmas trees intermingles with the irresistible aromas of cinnamon and cloves, which herald the city’s finest mulled wine. Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Hark to hear the melodious music of our brass ensemble. Savour our very own specialities. Treat all your senses during the festive season at St. Peter. We look forward to meeting you!

As the year draws to a close and Advent is just around the corner, St. Peter Stiftskulinarium spreads festive cheer thanks to its gloriously bedecked Willibaldarkaden courtyard. Welcoming, elegant and in the best of taste, St. Peter Stiftskulinarium is a jewel of the Advent season in Salzburg, replete with unique culinary delights. The 500-square-metre open-air dining area of St. Peter Stiftskulinarium has for centuries been the centrepiece of our magnificent grounds – and, in the run-up to Christmas, is transformed into an elegant winter wonderland.

As soon as they step into the courtyard, anyone seeking to leave the Christmas hustle and bustle of Salzburg behind for a moment is greeted by the sweet sounds of our brass ensemble. The aroma of our very own mulled wine and exquisite punch wafts through the delightfully bedecked courtyard, emanating from our popular mulled wine stand. Inspired by customs and tradition, the glittering sea of lights captivates visitors from near and afar. And should the ground also happen to be covered in a blanket of snow, the festive atmosphere at St. Peter Stiftskulinarium is truly unforgettable.
