Krampusse and Perchten

Evervy year during the Advent season there is this tradition to fight the evil ghosts of the dark times during with Krampusse and Perchten. Here you can find information about this tradition.

The tradition of "Krampus" goes back a few centuries. Every Advent season these scary creatures gather in groups and fight bad spirits and evil ghosts of the winter time. Together with St. Nicholas, who rewards good behaved children, the Krampus goes fom house to house and "punishes" bad children. 

Due to high interest of th public groups of Krampusse and Perchten gather to so called Krampusläufe ("Krampus-Runs") in every village. Also in the Fuschlseeregion such Krampusläufe take place every year. Find the following events below.
