Between November and December there are many Christmas Markets in Vienna, selling all kinds of Punch, mulled vine, mouth-watering treats and last but not least, a vast variety of seasonal gifts. The Viennese Christmas Market on the square in front of the City Hall is certainly the busiest one, which might be also due to its unique backdrop giving it a special charm or due to the famous ice rink Vienna Ice Dream next to the square, which makes the location the perfect winter wonderland in the middle of the city. On the ground floor of the City Hall there is also an area, where children can make Christmas cookies, candles and other gifts.However, no less imposingly are the backdrops of the Christmas Village Belvedere Palace or the Christmas Market at Schönbrunn Palace, and smaller markets such as the one at Spittelberg are just perfect for those who want to get into the spirit of the season in a more relaxed environment.
We recommend the Christkindlmarkt:
Rathausplatz, Karlskirche, Spittelberg, Schönbrunn Palace, Prater at Riesenradplatz, Belvedere Palace…
