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.
