The carving and making of cribs in loving detail work has a long tradition in the Salzkammergut. Around Christmas time, from the beginning of December until the beginning of February, you will visit the most beautiful handmade cribs in the Salzkammergut, some of them several centuries old, and partly exhibited in private houses.
...the motto "lake of the thousand crib figures" is in the focus. On the lake promenade in Strobl as well as in the garden of the parsonage St.Wolfgang 70 life-size, mostly painted, figures from spruce wood show typical crib scenes from the Salzkammergut. The small visitors will have themselves above all at the "living crib" in Strobl their joy. In the guesthouses around the Wolfgangsee many small cribs can be visited.
