Salzburg at Advent

Salzburg is so popular around the Christmas season that winter is considered high season for tourism. The city is beautiful with a light covering of snow, and that's likely to occur during Advent, the weeks before Christmas when Bob Krist of National Geographic shot this beautiful video of Salzburg's preparations for the season.
If this video doesn't put you in the mood for a winter visit to Salzburg, nothing will! It's very beautifully done. There are scenes of Perchtenläufe, a Celtic, pagan tradition in which young men dress as demons take to the streets and are still part of local customs. Of course there's also Christmas markets and Glühwein!
