The „Krampus“ Festival in Seefeld, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, is an awesome spectacle. From 06 to 07 December, the "demonic figure", which accords with old customs, provides real scary moments.

The Musical Advent from 10 to 12 December prepares for the Advent season. Opera singer Eva Lind lets the church St. Oswald sound with an impressive opening concert on 11 December. Semino Rossi, Petra Frey and „Die Granaten“ offer on 12 December top-class sounds with the Christmas concert in the WSC-hall.

Chapel hikes in the idyllic Leutaschtal valley
In the 16 km long Leutaschtal valley you can experience long forgotten customs in an impressive way. Guided chapel walks (every Friday and Saturday during Advent from 5 pm) with torches and lanterns take you on a hike through the twenty historical treasures of the valley and learn a lot about life as it used to be. Christmas shepherd's songs and songs round off the evening before we head for the cosy Leutascher inns, where culinary treasures from grandmother's kitchen are tasted together. In addition the Leutascher Advent market takes place at the music pavilion Weidach.

Opening hours: Sunday, 08. and 15. December, from 4 pm, music pavilion Weidach
