Tirolean Mountain Christmas
Anyone who is interested in regional traditions can visit the „Tiroler Bergweihnacht“ (Tirolean Mountain Christmas) at the Sixenhof in Achenkirch, featuring a nativity scene with life-size figures and live animals. Visitors will be presented a 30-minute alpine version of the Christmas story.
This year marks the 20th edition of the event where the centuries-old barn of the Sixenhof, a museum of local history, will be transformed into a nativity scene featuring life-size figures and live animals. Visitors will be presented a 30-minute alpine version of the Christmas story, and afterwards are welcome to taste “Achentaler Zelten” – a special fruit bread from the local bakery in the old open-fire kitchen of the historic single farmhouse. The fruit bread is a traditional bakery which the Tirolean people enjoy during the festive season.
The admission fee also covers a visit of the 14 showrooms of the local history museum. A traditionally decorated Christmas tree and one of the oldest nativity scenes of the Achental is displayed in the former bedroom of the farmers.
