Alpine magic on Postplatz

Where Santa wears sunglasses

Curling, after-work parties, après-ski, disco, food, drink and partying: the Christmas market on Postplatz is also something of an event – great fun for groups as well. Spread out over more than 2,000 square metres, with two restaurants, a cafe and a children’s playground, the alpine-themed market has the space and generates the perfect atmosphere for the large Christmas parties that spontaneously take place here every day. Sporty types can compete to their heart’s content on the curling sheet.

Events on Postplatz

Knock free for the first 100 guests.

Location: Après Ski Hütte, Postplatz


“Hänsel & Gretel” – fairy tale opera

“Hansel and Gretel” is one of the most popular fairy tales. So it is not surprising that Engelbert Humperdinck’s fairy tale opera of the same name is one of the most played works in the repertoire. Humperdinck’s music is completely rooted in the folk song, although only three folk songs are directly quoted. With this work he creates an opera for the whole family that has inspired young and old for many generations.

The Christmas Goose Auguste

A family comedy by Friedrich Wolf. The story takes place many years ago, at Christmas time. The Löwenhaupt family – father Luitpold Löwenhaupt, an opera singer, mother Gerlinde, her son Peterle and grandma Hedwig – lived in a little house on the outskirts of the town. One day father Luitpold brought home a goose. She was to become the Christmas roast on Christmas Eve. Only one thing is certain: in the end everything will end well. At least that’s how Auguste told us yesterday. And she must know…
