One of the most popular times in Salzburg is during the festive season when the town is lit up with thousands of Christmas lights and decorations.
During this time, many Christmas markets are setup where tourists and local residents alike come out to enjoy a mug of traditional Glühwein (hot mulled wine) and eat some roasted chestnuts and almonds.
Be aware that you should wrap up warm when visiting these markets as winters in Salzburg can be harsh. The good news is that that makes the chances of seeing snow falling all that much higher!
