Winter Staycation

I am one of those people who absolutely love the Christmas Season, bright lights, cozy nights, spicy flavors in the air and cold noses. This year I decided to plan something really special for the pre- Christmas Season and spent the most magical staycation with my sister in Hallstatt in Austria. Many of you probably have already heard from this World Heritage Site in Austria. 

We stayed in the cutest Hotel called the 'Heritage Hotel Hallstatt'.
As we arrived we checked in, had a delicious traditional Austrian dinner including a hot punch. Yum! We couldn't wait to start exploring this cute little village, so we headed out in the dark and into the sea of Christmas fairy lights..

The following day we went to St. Wolfgang, about a 35min drive from Hallstatt to see more of this beautiful area and to visit the most magical Christmas markets here.
Early in the morning we had a little stroll through the Christkindlesmarket, which was still empty and calm. So we wrapped up warm and drank a hot tea to battle the crisp winter air. Around midday we headed to the boats and made our way to St. Gilgen another cute Christmas market on the Wolfgang Lake.

Later in the evening we were already freezing our bums off, but on our boat ride back to St. Wolfgang we just couldn't resist and stand outside to observe the calming view and lights. The sceneries around here are more than breathtaking, nothing compared to back home in Lower Austria.
As we arrived in St. Wolfgang again, all the lights have been lit up which made the whole experience more cheerful.

The days have passed by too quick and on our last one we just had to explore little Hallstatt again by daylight. What a magical place, it felt like out of this world, cozy and where time stands still...
