The Chapel of Grace and the magnificent baroque buildings around Kapellplatz square provide the atmospheric backdrop for Altötting's traditional Christkindlmarkt. Highlights include the traditional Advent concerts with choirs and orchestras from Upper Bavaria and Salzburg, the grand Christmas concert with Salzburg's Domsingknaben boys' choir (8 December) and the exhibition of Nativity scenes (a tradition dating back 400 years) in and outside churches and in the town hall. There are also old Bavarian carols, a 'European Christmas' with the Bad Tölz boys' choir and a New Year's celebration with fireworks on the chapel square.
