 "Adventsingen" is very popular in Bavaria, Austria and South Tyrol, mainly in churches but also in public places, like here at the Christmas market of Sarnthein / Sarentino.

  1. What a great holiday treat this is. I feel like I was right there.

  2. Mann das ist einfach wunderschön, auch die Trachten! Habe selber heute ein bisschen gesungen, beim Plätzchen backen... :-)

  3. Beautiful pictures and cozy Christmas atmosphere in the video, Karl!

    Greetings from Denmark,

  4. I would have loved to see and hear this in person. It is important to keep traditional music going.

  5. Good shots!

    And I say that as someone who never cared for the sound of an accordion!

  6. Danke für die große Freude die Musik der Alpen zu hören. Ich habe den ganzen Abend verbracht vom Süd Tirol durch Innsbruck nach Salzburg und in Umwegen wieder zurück und hinüber nach Bayern. Es klang alles so heimisch.
    So schön auch die Damen in ihren Festtagskleidern zu sehen. Nochmals danke!

  7. This is so 'The Alps', if you know what I mean. Lovely!
