Christmas in the Mühlviertel
The Mühlviertel region has always been considered the epitome of idyll and tradition.
During the Christmas season, however, this enchanting region is transformed into a true winter wonderland. The undulating landscpae presents itself in a deep carpet of snow, while the villages and towns, with their winding alleyways and side streets, exude a romantically nostalgic, almost medieval flair.
Customs and old traditions are well-preserved, atmospheric Christmas markets charm and pamper browsing customers with all manner of delicious and delightful wares, and artisans and artists proffer fascinating artefacts.
Thanks to the formative impressions from the nieghbouring states of Bavaria in Germany and South Bohemia in the Czech Republic, this region displays an incredible diversity of Christmas customs and traditions.
At the same time, the Mühlviertel region has managed to preserve a deeply rooted, down-to-earth character. Hand-made straw stars and hand-painted wooden figures decorate the Christmas trees.
Homes are filled with the scent of freshly baked biscuits, and the local people often eat a simple bratwurst with pan-fried-potatoes and sauerkraut on Christmas Eve, instead of indulging in an opulent meal. Special emphasis is given to basic values, such as family and traditionn, and a sense of idyll and harmony is all around.
In short: the Mühlviertel is a real winter fairytale, and would actually present the motif for a crystal snow globe.
