Advent in the castle

What Princess Irmingard of Bavaria, born in Berchtesgaden Castle in 1923, experienced at Christmas: We tell you about that during our tours in the Advent, which start late afternoon. Outside, dusk is already upon us and one thinks one can hear the firewood crackle in the mighty hearth of the monastery’s kitchen.

Candlelight shows the way through the rooms of the castle – and all at once, there is the sense of the veracity of a quiet and contemplative Advent. Advent means „arrival“, which starts at the Annunciation to Mary. The soprano Franziska Wagenlehner, who accompanies the Advent tours with music, sings about that as well.
