The Krampus walk in Grossarl is one of the most popular in the region. The many presenters show off their dreadful masks.
During your visit to the Salzburg Mountain Advent in the Grossarl valley you can also experience this special event. The start is on 5. December 2023 from 07.00 p.m. The hair-raising figures are absolutely not aggressive although it is tradition for the Krampus to pretend to use their whips. However, small children are never touched.
Many of the masks are hand made and unique. In Hüttschlag there are internationally renowned specialists. The owners of the Talwirt carve up to 70 masks each year.
On the first three Advent weekends, the "Perchten" exhibition takes place on Saturday and Sunday from 2 p.m. - 8 p.m. at the mill next to the Reitwiese. There is punch and a cozy campfire.
