Your Christmas holiday in Fuschl - Waldhof style 

On Christmas Eve things become very quiet, the atmosphere is calm and serene. The scent of Christmas biscuits and stollen lies heavy and sweet in the air of the covered courtyard at the Waldhof. While elsewhere in the world the pre-Christmas stress is reaching its climax, on your holiday at Ebner's Waldhof you can simply sit back, relax and wollow in joyous anticipation of peaceful Christmas celebrations.   

Then, when the sun begins to set, we gather around the big Christmas tree in the covered courtyard. The dulcet tones of a zither sets the mood for the Christmas story that is then read. At midnight you are invited to join the Ebner Family when they walk to the local parish church for midnight mass. Upon our return you can enjoy a tasty Salzburg tradition - the "Metten- Suppe" a traditional Christmas soup which is accompanied by the Christmas carol that was composed and written in Salzburg County: 

Silent night, holy night 

All is calm, all is bright 

'Round yon virgin Mother and Child 

Holy infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace

Sleep in heavenly peace
