The most famous Christmas market of Austria has to be the wonderful ‘December Market’ of Vienna which dates as far back as 1924, although there are around 25 winter markets to explore across the city. The Vienna Christmas market season starts from 17th November, giving you plenty of time to stock up on Christmas gifts before the big day! The city of Vienna is the perfect place for a romantic break and the traditional decorations and nativity displays helps to create a charming holiday atmosphere. Amongst the Christmas stalls you’ll find arts and crafts, ornaments, clothing and, the best bit, plenty of delicious grub! Indulge yourself with a bag of cotton candy, roasted chestnuts, Christmas punch and candied fruit. A pony ride or a ride on the Christkindl Express is also worth try!
Don’t fancy a holiday to Vienna? Visit arguably the Advent capital of Austria, Graz. The Christmas market starts from the 23rd November and from 1st December the stunning Graz City Hall is turned into a giant Advent calendar in preparation for Christmas. Outside the hall a selection of traditional Christmas stalls can also be found with everything from handicrafts to wonderful edible treats!
Salzburg is another great place to visit for a Christmas market holiday. Visit the Cathedral Square, wander the traditional market booths and admire the illuminated decorations.
