Vienna's Christmas market
If you're here at Yuletide, lucky you - this is one of those magical holiday experiences you'll always treasure.
One of Europe's great Christmas markets
Like its fellow Teutonic culture Germany, Austria is especially good at doing Christmas, and by extension Christmas markets. So most of central Vienna but particularly near Schönbrunn and the City Hall square are given over to the Christkindlmarkt for half of November and most of December, with acres upon acres of stalls selling ornaments, crafts, gifts, seasonal goodies, clothing, Nativities, along with rides and an ice skating rink. A very special atmosphere throughout a very special part of the city.
