You would actually go out of your away to avoid them, especially when it’s dark. But not on this day! On November 15 the big Krampus Gathering in Kappl takes place for the twelfth time. And even if they might look scary with their highly-detailed carved masks, their bulky fur coats and the jerky movements they make in their shows – this event has been a real visitor magnet in Paznaun for years now.
”Krampus groups from many different parts of Austria, as well as from Germany or Italy, will come and present their shows on Kohlplatz,” says the organizer, David Rudigier of the Krampus Club in Kappl. He and his team have also made sure that the musical entertainment is spot on. “The programme is ready. We’ve managed to get great bands and sensational DJs for the event, such as Die jungen Südsteirer or DJ Instyle, who also played at the Summersplash or the Olympic Games, amongst others.”
The event has by now become well-known well beyond the boundaries of Paznaun, too – the organizers are once again expecting around 1 400 visitors. If you want to take part, you should make sure you get your tickets as soon as possible. “We don’t envisage any tickets being available on the evening itself,” says David Rudigier.
Advance ticket sales begin in a couple of days, however. From 1 October, tickets are available in all branches of Raiba Paznaun and from all members of the Kappl Krampus Club. Price: 14 euros standard price, 12 euros with Raiffeisen Club membership.
