Advent in Mondsee
On each weekend in Advent small businesses, handicraft workshops and local cultural societies will be taking part and displaying their wares. Particular highlights of advent in Mondsee include such treasures as hand-carved cribs, old fashioned crafts from guild-artisans, as well as cultural events from Mondsee clubs and societies. In the cloisters next to the basilica, there is an exhibition of cribs where the Goldhaubenfrauen will also present their hand embroidered bonnets. Particularly thrilling is the Christbaumtauchen (dipping of the Christmas-tree in the lake) by the Mondsee Life Guards! Pre-Christmas celebrations in the basilica include the blessing of advent wreaths as well as performances of select pieces of music by the church choir.
