“Silent Night! Holy Night!” – THE SOUND OF AUSTRIA

5 October 2018

Three Austrian regions - Salzburg, Tirol and Upper Austria - are celebrating the 200-year anniversary of the famous Christmas carol “Silent Night! Holy Night!” written by Joseph Mohr, a priest from Salzburg and Franz Xaver Gruber, an Upper Austrian teacher. 

“Silent Night! Holy Night!” quickly embarked on a journey from Austria to Europe and to the rest of the world due to its magic. More than 2 billion people in over 300 languages and dialects sing the world-famous Christmas carol each year.

To cherish this Song of Peace and its origin, we would like to take you on a journey through Austria’s winter wonderland and follow Joseph Mohr and Franz Xaver Gruber’s footsteps. In a 4-week series on our Facebook page in November, we will introduce you to amazing locations and their customs, traditions and culinary delicacies. See beyond the Sound of Music and discover for yourself what Austria really is about.

Can’t wait until November? Visit Silent Night to learn more about the song and gather inspiration for a future visit to our stunning Austria.
