As a special feature, visitors to the market can stroll through the numerous showrooms on 8,000 square metres and learn about historical technology and how people live and work in the Alpine region. Among the exhibits are an ancient Tirolean carpenter’s workshop, about 500 handmade dolls and the stern of an Achensee ship which is over 120 years old with a fully functioning motor.

Visitors can enjoy hot drinks, market stalls offering hearty snacks and home-made baked goods. The vibrant Christmas fair will start at 12.00 noon at the Achensee Museum World in the district Lärchenwiese in Maurach.
