European Krampus Tour

European Krampus Tour

Have you ever wanted to experience an actual European Krampuslauf?

I’d like to invite Bone and Sickle listeners to a very special trip I’ll be hosting for Geek Nation Tours this winter.

Kristmas with Krampus

November 30 – December 7, 2018

We’ll visit several towns in Austria and Bavaria where you can encounter not dozens but hundreds of the beasts in authentic costumes. I’ll be sharing Krampus lore from my book “The Krampus and the Old Dark Christmas” throughout the tour. 

We’ll be hitting TWO BIG KRAMPUS RUNS in SALZBURG and GRAZ as well as visiting other sites with the sort of darker, offbeat appeal that Krampus fans are sure to savor. Photos below are from sites we will be visiting.

Other highlights include:
VIENNA: Anatomical Pathological Museum housed in the “Madhouse Tower” (former asylum). The semi-abandoned, gothically overgrown St. Marx cemetery where Mozart is interred. SALZBURG: “Mountains & Mythology” tour and ‘Hidden Corners” tour of the 12th-century Hohensalzburg fortress, accessing parts of the castle not normally visited. MUNICH: The famous bejeweled skeleton of St. Munditia in the St. Peters church. BERCHTESGADEN: world’s oldest functioning salt mine tour including boat trip across underground salt lake. There will also be plenty of unscheduled time for planning your own afternoon excursions.
