Contemplating the essential
The Mühlviertel with its clarity and calm is the ideal place to contemplate what is essential. In Advent, when in addition to professional life, family life often also becomes busier, such places are worth their weight in gold.
While for the rest of the year the Mühlviertel is a region that offers relaxation, this is particularly true of Advent. The cool air and the soft snow dampen the sound level even more. When there are celebrations in village churches or woodland chapels, the season of quiet contemplation has started. And in the deep snowy conifer forests, you will be tempted to pick out a good Christmas tree.
According to the region, people have different approaches to this festive and calm season. The advent markets in the Böhmerwald take place at quiet locations. The stone quarry in Natschlag is typical of the Mühlviertel. Between steep granite walls, fireplaces crackle and it smells of Christmas. The Meierhof of the Schlägl Monastery attracts afficionados of artisan crafts and Mühlviertel delicacies every year. Children's eyes will shine at the fairytale advent in the hunting fairytale park Hirschalm in the region of the Mühlviertel alpine pasture..
