Experience winter magic just like in the old days, ski down the slopes and relax in the healing thermal water. An Advent trilogy of a special kind awaits you in Bad Kleinkirchheim. Because if you're looking for traditional crafts, slow food culinary delights and quiet moments, you'll feel right at home at Kirchheimer Advent. From November 30, the enchanting Christmas village in the spa park with ice skating rink and contemplative light installations opens its doors. Local producers invite visitors to taste baked goods and all kinds of homemade specialties. In addition, Genussland Kärnten show chef Marco Krainer reveals his tips for the perfect Slow Food Christmas menu and shares his tried and tested Christmas recipes. Or how about a torchlit hike through the winter wonderland? The breath of Christmas is in the air during a walk along the Advent Trail to the little church of St. Kathrein, in whose crypt the thermal water springs. On Saturdays there is a Holy Mass with musical accompaniment to tell about the peaceful Christmas message. What do you wish for the Great Feast? In the Christkindl post office, little guests can write their wish letters or make their own Christmas decorations in the Advent workshop. This turns the Advent season into a true moment of sunshine for the whole family.
Carinthia's second largest skiing area starts the winter season already on December 7. When you breathe in the crystal-clear mountain air while carving on the wide slopes and feel the crunch of the snow under your skis, you are finally within reach of winter bliss. After an active winter day, "thermal pleasure to the power of TWO" greets you. Because: Bad Kleinkirchheim has two thermal spas! The water surface in the St. Kathrein Family & Health Spa is regularly transformed into a sea of candles during Advent. Swim in candlelight and come to rest during Advent meditations - that is balm for the soul. In the Thermal Römerbad, the spacious sauna area invites you to relax. Simply pure pleasure.
