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!
