The Christmas Market at the Salzburger Dom (Cathedral)

Throughout late November and December until Christmas, the Christmas Market around the Salzburger Dom (cathedral) is the most important meeting and mingling spot in the city. This picture was taken on Residenzplatz. Locals meet here for after-work drinks (typically a cup of mulled wine or punch, a mix of rum and tea) or for warming-up drinks prior to Christmas parties. For more elaborate purchases, we advice visitors to avoid the Christmas Market - unless it is for local crafts that you won't find elsewhere, the Christmas Market stands are usually significantly more expensive than the supermarkets or other shops that you will find in the outskirts of Salzburg. For general advice on where to buy things in and around this city, read our article on "Shopping in Salzburg".
