This beautifully detailed advent calendar depicts the Christmas Market (Weihnachtsmarkt) in Graz the second largest city in Austria. The historic buildings frosted with snow, including Schloss Eggenberg rising over the Hauptplatz in the background, frame the scene with a large Christmas tree nestled among the market stalls. The windows and booths glow in the twilight as townsfolk enjoy Christmas festivities.
The detailed picture has 24 little doors to open. Each door has a little picture behind it. The tradition is to open one door each day from December 1 thru December 24. Children love to open a door a day as they count down to Christmas.
