About the event

The traditional Arts and Crafts Market/Christmas market - season finale and highlight of 2024
We are very much looking forward to once again presenting modern arts and crafts to you in the Knights' Hall and on the gallery. Over 60 exhibitors await you to makeing find the right gifts easy.

In the courtyards and in front of the castle, torches will light up the medieval market. The scent of roasted almonds wafts around the old walls. From hand-sewn leather products to childrens' armour and magnificent one of a kind ceramic pieces - the medieval market is an experience in itself.

Of course, we also think of your physical well-being - whether sweet, savory, vegetarian or with meat and fish - you will enjoy it! Fruity punch and fragrant mulled wine will warm your hands and your soul! We are happy to entertain you with captivating live music. And of course the "Wölfe zu Dunkelstein" will once again be watching over the action!
Of course, the alpacas are not to be missed either....those eyelashes...

At 6 p.m. it gets colorful every evening - the popular fireworks display shines over the castle and bathes it in wonderful colors! To all dog owners: the fireworks are of course loud - please consider beforehand whether you can and want to put your pet through that.

IMPORTANT: you can also pay by card at some exhibitors - but not for most of them. So please take enough cash with you. The nearest ATMs are in Melk and Mautern.

As always, our shuttle buses will take you comfortably from Aggstein up to the castle and back down again: € 3.00 per person for both journeys
Last departure on every market day at 19:30h

You can also buy tickets for the market and the shuttle bus in our online ticket store - and save yourself the hassle of queuing! 

We are VERY much looking forward to the festival and - to YOU!
