Krampus run at Marienplatz.

Krampus is a mythical creature originating from Alpine folklore, particularly in Germanic and Austrian traditions. Often depicted as a horned, anthropomorphic figure with cloven hooves, Krampus is believed to accompany Saint Nicholas during the Christmas season. While St. Nicholas rewards well-behaved children with gifts, Krampus is said to punish the naughty ones by swatting them with birch branches or, in more ominous tales, carrying them away in a sack.
