Christkindl
The Essential
The hamlet of Christkindl, whose name translates as "Christ Child", has an elegant basilica with a charming tradition. Every year, from late November to 6 January, the Austrian Postal Service sets up a special "Christ Child" post office here, to which Christmas wishes can be sent from around the world. Children who enclose a stamped addressed envelope will receive a reply to their letter.
