On December 7, the market square in Goisern will turn into a seething cauldron again: Nice Angels and Santa Claus meet at the legendary Salzkammergut Krampus run on countless evil Krampus and Perchten! Viewers and participants travel from near and far to this impressive folklore event. And for the "youngster Kramperl" there`s even a children's Krampuslauf.
The Salzkammergut Krampus Place which takes place on 7th December in the centre of Bad Goisern is a much loved, traditional event which attracts visitors from near and far. This is a colourful display of intricately decorated masks and costumes with Krampus processions from many parts of Austria. This is an annual event which is growing in popularity amongst both participants and spectators.
Last year we had a record-breaking number of participants - more than 1000, as well as several thousands of spectators. Preparations are already in full swing for this year's event. Lots of groups with colourful, eerie masks have already expressed their interests.
The Salzkammegut Krampus Parade on the 7th of December in Bad Goisern is an event not to be missed!
Events get underway at 5 p.m. with the festive "Folk Music Advent“ with entertainers and brass musicians. To keep the cold out, there are hot drinks on sale, including punch, as well as other snacks from the stalls organised by Goisern charity organisations. After Children's Krampus Parade - the children await the arrival, at 06:00 p.m., of St Nicholas, who has a lot of gifts in his sack to give away.
The crowds eagerly await the arrival of the Krampus procession and the display of gruesome masks and costumes. Each group has its own special theme. Keep the 7th of December as a fixed date in your diary, and make sure you can join us in Bad Goisern for the Salzkammergut Krampus Parade!
