Vienna Christmas Markets

Vienna Christmas Markets – Winter time in Vienna. Christmas time is coming up, and you want to get in the right mood? Want to drink some punch and enjoy the numerous sweet delicacies of the Austrian art of baking? Then off you go to one of the wonderful Viennese Christmas markets!
From mid-November to Christmas, the cityscape of Vienna changes and presents itself completely in Christmas anticipation. This is celebrated in Vienna with, among other things, numerous Christmas markets where tourists as well as Viennese meet to drink punch, eat sweets, and greet the cold season together and celebrate the coming Christmas. Take your children by the hand and visit one of Vienna’s extraordinary Christmas markets, such as by far the most famous: The Vienna Christmas Dream in front of the Rathausplatz. With a children’s world, including a merry-go-round, a reindeer train, and great other attractions, your child will never want to leave this place!
But in addition to the Christmas Market on Rathausplatz, there are many others, such as the Old Viennese Christmas Market on Freyung Square, the Christmas Village on Maria Theresien Square, the Culture and Christmas Market in front of Schönbrunn Palace or the beautiful Spittelberg Christmas Market — there is something for everyone here. If you’re in Vienna at Christmas time, the Vienna Christmas Markets are definitely a highlight of the season and will be a lot of fun for you and your family!
