ST. NICHOLAS
AND HIS KRAMPUS

DISCOVER AN OLD TRADITION

Every year on 5 and 6 December, Krampus, wrapped in straw and fur, accompany St. Nicholas from house to house at the "Krampuslauf" in the mountain region of Berchtesgaden.

The Krampus are wearing awe-inspiring wood or fur masks, heavy cow bells and a rod, which many people feel with a slap on the legs.

St. Nicholas wears the festive attire of a bishop and is accompanied by an angel.
