Beautiful Christmasmarkets set the mood to Christmas…
From mid November until the Christmas holidays, Vienna’s prettiest squares transform into magical Christmas markets.
The aroma of Christmas baking and hot punch can be smelled on various places in the city. We would like to share our most beautiful Christmasmarkt-recommendations with you:
Vienna Christmas World on Rathausplatz with around 150 sales booths that offer Christmas gifts, Christmas tree decorations, handicrafts, culinary treats, confectionery and warming drinks. The trees in City Hall park and along the Ringstrasse boulevard radiate a festive glow. Visitors can skate over a 3,000 m² ice rink and along numerous paths through the park. The Children’s World offers a carousel, a reindeer train and wonderful light installations in the park, which are based on Christmas stories for children.
The Old Viennese Christmas Market on Freyung in the city center is committed to tradition. A Christmas market was held here already in 1772; today, it is a place to buy handicrafts, glass decorations, traditional mangers and ceramics. Festive Advent music can be heard on the square from 4.00 pm. Top-quality handicrafts can also be purchased a couple of steps further along at the Am Hof Advent Market.
Art Advent on Karlsplatz offers a diverse children’s program and above all handicrafts to buy. Further variety is provided by art installations, show workshops and live bands. All of the food on offer is organically certified. There are also numerous stalls full of artisans’ wares in the idyllic tiny alleyways at the Christmas Market on Spittelberg, just a few minutest walking distance from Karlsplatz, and with numerous other vendors with unique culinary gift ideas.
The Christmas Markets in front of Schönbrunn Palace or in front of Belvedere castle enchant with their imperial backdrop. These atmospheric markets offer traditional handicrafts, hand-made Christmas decorations, Christmas concerts and an extensive children’s program, including Christmas workshop. Both of them impress visitors with their historic and imperial background and provide an ideal site for a tranquil Christmas market with elegant handicrafts and culinary delights
