“Glöckler” Parades in the Salzkammergut

At the time of the twelfth night ancient traditions with their mysterious magic have a fixed place in the Salzkammergut.

Every year on 5 January, the eve of Epiphany, “Glöckler” figures parade. They are beings of the light and wear beautifully shining handmade hats of the Salzkammergut. The “Glöckler” figures drive out bad spirits and bring salvation and blessing. A unique spectacle for spectators.

Ebensee am Traunsee is the place where this twelfth night custom originates. This ancient custom has been declared immaterial cultural heritage of Austria by the UNESCO.
