Advent in Vienna & Schönbrunn
Join us, let's explore Schönbrunn and Vienna by Advent together!
The popular Christkindlmarkt in front of the Town Hall is also known as the Vienna Christmas Dream. Together with the delightful Christmas illumination and the Ice Dream in the Rathauspark, this place is obligatory program for all of us during the Advent season.
From the middle of November until the end of the year, Vienna is the place to find romantic Christmas markets. Glistening lights, seasonal treats and snow-covered roofs make for a magical experience in Vienna.
The Christmas markets in Vienna truly are an age-old tradition. The forerunners of the present-day events date back to the Middle Ages when in 1298 Albrecht I granted Vienna’s citizens the privilege of holding a December Market or “Krippenmarkt”. Since then, the character and prevalence of these markets has changed considerably. Nowadays, over 20 official Advent Markets sell a vast array of seasonal gifts and mouth-watering treats.
The Viennese Christmas Market in front of the City Hall is an unforgettable highlight for those eager to get into the spirit of the season. The unique backdrop gives this market a charm of its own, and the delicious aromas are sure to lull all visitors into the seasonal joy. Inside the City Hall on the ground floor there is an area dedicated to children, where they can learn how to make Christmas cookies or candles.
Approximately 60 exhibitors present handicrafts and original gifts such as hand-made Christmas decorations and nativity sets for visitors to admire and purchase right in front of the famous Schönbrunn Palace. The fragrance of freshly baked Vanillekipferl and hot punch fills the air and creates a wonderful atmosphere.
