... Traditional Christmas colors of red and green are prominently used.

The most popular time of year to buy these colorful ornaments is, of course, Christmas time, particularly during Advent which runs from November 20 through December 26. At this time the ambiance of the Christmas market in Salzburg is heightened to match the magic of the season.

Christkindl Markets (Christmas Markets) are highlight tourist destinations found throughout Germany and Austria and particularly in Salzburg, the city also noted as the hometown of Mozart. They represent a retail tradition that goes back to the 15th Century and offer the charming European shopping experience. They are named after the Christkindl, a traditional Christmas gift giver who comes in the form of a "sprite" child. This depiction is an intended reference to the myths of children bringing gifts to the Baby Jesus, and even the Christ Child himself.
