    Velden Engelstadt am Wörthersee
  • Velden Engelstadt am Wörthersee

Every year the Velden Advent shines again. Velden is known as a pulsating Wörthersee metropolis. Except that during Advent, the town transforms into a romantic angel town. Be it the floating Advent wreath, the symbol of Velden Advent, or the castle hotel. Or perhaps the illuminated squares. All of them conjure up light and warmth in the hearts of the countless Advent visitors. Whether customs, carriage ride or slow train. A large offer invites therefore to the Advent excursion. If you would like to visit several places on Lake Wörthersee, we recommend the Advent boat trip.

Atmospheric through the Christmas season

The Standpark in front of the Schlosshotel is this year the backdrop for one of the most beautiful Advent markets in Austria. On the one hand, the Angel City offers a colorful potpourri of traditional Advent huts and handicrafts. On the other hand, an experience of Christmas sensations. Scents of fir brushwood, beeswax and incense from the huts of the Advent traders create the right mood for visitors. All this forms the unmistakable symphony of the pre-Christmas season.

Brightly lit

Some of the attractions of the village are just as impressive as they are atmospheric. Basically, the whole of Velden is brightly lit. However, one should have seen some special features. First, there is the area in front of the Falkensteiner Schlosshotel Velden. There it is on the one hand the famous "Schloss am Wörthersee" itself. On the other hand, the impressive "Floating Advent Wreath" and the baroque nativity scene on the shore of Lake Wörthersee.

The Velden Advent A romantic Christmas fairy tale

Thereis a special magic inherent in the Christmas season...and here in Velden this magic is brought to life.

Advent 2021 will be different, but nevertheless the Veldener-Engerl team will strive to create an atmospheric and contemplative atmosphere. Velden was, is and will remain the angel town on Lake Wörthersee that makes children's eyes shine.

The beach park in front of the Schlosshotel and the lake provide the incomparable backdrop for one of Austria's most atmospheric Advent markets, which enchants its countless visitors every year.

A charming mix of cozily designed squares with lovingly decorated Advent stalls, warming fire bowls, traditional arts and crafts and the unique magic of lights on and around the lake creates an unforgettable feel-good atmosphere.
