Christkindl Post Office

Already for the 65th time the A-4411 Christkindl Post Office opens its doors. In the beginning (1950), this popular postmark was stamped on about 42,000 letters and cards. Interest increased and today 16 employees are needed to hand stamp the letters and cards arriving from all over the world. Last season already 2 million letters and cards were dispatched from the Christkindl Post Office at the Hotel & Restaurant Christkindlwirt.

Children’s letters to the Christ child

Letters sent by children from all over the world to the Christ child are forwarded to the Christkindl Christmas post office where they are answered by standardised letters.

In order to make it easier for the Christ child to answer their letters, children in Austria are requested to enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope and children writing from outside Austria a self-addressed, unstamped envelope and an international reply coupon with their letters.


Children's Day

The Christ child comes along and there is a great children's program.
