St. Gilgen, St. Wolfgang, and Strobl are the three villages trimming Lake Wolfgang, about an hour east of Salzburg. We spent a magical day between the villages, cheerily dressed for the holidays and with their glittering Advent markets offering something for everyone. The day was easily the highlight of our Salzkammergut holiday. Enjoy.


Clayton Theodore meets a Llama.

Why, yes. That is a “bum” cookie cutter.


Cozy huts made for a perfect snack break.

Deer Bratwurst. Delicious.




One of the small nativity scenes in Strobl.

The young buck and Clayton Theodore did not exactly become the best of friends.
