The Christmas market on Rathausplatz: a feast for the senses

Probably the most famous Christmas market in Vienna is the „Christkindlmarkt“ on Rathausplatz,
which attracts millions of visitors from all over the world every year. This market offers a fascinating
mix of traditional and modern Christmas magic. The magnificent backdrop of Vienna City Hall, which
is festively illuminated in the run-up to Christmas, lends the market a fairytale atmosphere.

Here you will find festively decorated stalls offering a variety of handicrafts, Christmas gifts and
delicious treats. The fragrant Christmas baked goods, the traditional Austrian mulled wine specialty
“Punsch” and delicious roasted chestnuts are just some of the culinary delights you can enjoy here.
The Christkindlmarkt is also a place where children can look forward to a visit from the Christ Child,
who personally hands out presents.

The city is ablaze with lights

Apart from the Christkindlmarkt, Vienna offers a variety of Christmas markets during the Advent
season, which bathe the city in a sparkling glow of lights. The Christmas market in front of
Schönbrunn Palace is another highlight not to be missed. Here you can stroll between the
magnificent baroque facades of the palace while enjoying Christmas music and treats.

A stroll through the „Altwiener Advent market“ on the Freyung will take you back in time, with its
traditional crafts and Christmas treats. We also recommend the „Spitelberg Christmas market“,
which is particularly appealing to young people with its hip, modern atmosphere and creative arts
and crafts stalls.
