When angels fly above the church square

back to magazine overview

There it is again, the special time of the year. Even though the preparations in Lech are in full swing, there is still some peace and quiet in the evening. And nothing could symbolize this peace and the feeling of coming together better than the Lech Christmas Market, which once again attracts visitors and locals alike this year.

The Christmas market in Lech takes place on four days in the second half of Advent. The church square offers an incomparably beautiful setting for the market, which with all kinds of delicacies makes you forget the evening cold. The exhibitors present their goods in the small huts around the square. In between, visitors warm themselves at the open fireplaces or admire the crib, which has been designed with great attention to detail. Around 7 p. m. the Alphorn concert of the Trachtenkapelle Lech begins, which entertains the visitors and makes the setting even more harmonious. There was a special surprise on Sunday, when "Angels of Lech" surprised the little visitors with chocolate Santa Clauses. It is these small moments and experiences that make the Advent in Lech a special experience and allow us to rest in this time.
