christmas markets in Vienna

Christmas markets or traditional Christmas markets have a long tradition and great importance in Vienna. Every year in Advent about 3.5 million visitors enjoy the many offers of the Christmas markets in Vienna. At almost every corner in the center of the city you get the classic delicacies of punch over chestnuts or baked potatoes in the Advent season.

The visit of some Christmas markets is now part of the atmospheric sightseeing through Vienna. Pre-Christmas mood can be experienced not only on the large squares such as the Town Hall Square or the Maria-Theresien-Platz but also in the winding streets of Spittelberg.

Take cash with you. There are hardly any stands where you can pay by card.
Put on enough clothes. Scarf / thick hood. It can get really cold!

1. Viennese Christmas dream on the Rathausplatz

The largest Austrian Christmas market is located every year on the Vienna Town Hall Square. About 150 stalls sell handicrafts, hot drinks and many culinary delights. The reception with a meter-high gate morning is befitting for the Vienna Town Hall Square. A huge ice rink with winding paths of around 3,000 m² invites visitors to skate comfortably in the Rathauspark. The Viennese Rathausplatz belongs in the advent time to a place which one must necessarily have visited. A children’s world also ensures the pre-Christmas mood for the little ones.

If you also want to do some physical exercise in addition to enjoying the delicacies, you are well advised to visit the curling rinks.
