Christmas mail with the "Via Christkindl post office" special postmark

At the Christkindl post office, all permitted types of letters for both domestic and international destinations are accepted, and special postmarking is offered. A visit to the special post office isn't essential to get the sought-after Christkindl stamp: with the additional "Via Christkindl post office" stamp, letters are directly routed to the Christkindl post office, given the special stamp, and then delivered to the recipients. All you need to do is stick the additional stamp onto your already franked Christmas post and submit it at any postal counter (important: don't drop it into a letterbox!). We'll handle everything else for you!

Children's letters and wishes addressed directly to "Christkindl" from around the world also receive a reply from the special post office. For letters from abroad, an international reply coupon is required so that "Christkindl" can reply with a stamp and the special postmark.

Christkindl additional stamp

The self-adhesive additional stamp measures 25.50 x 31.50mm. The additional stamp was designed by the artist Marion Füllerer. It displays the upper portion of the Christkindl pilgrimage church with the inscription "Via Christkindl post office". The additional stamps come in a set (of 6 each) and are available for EUR 5.70. They will be available for purchase from 17 November 2023.

For further information on purchasing the additional stamp, please visit our online shop or your local postal branch around the time of the release.

Don't forget:
Just as in previous years, we have new Christmas stamps to give your holiday mail a unique final touch with festive designs.
