Vienna Christmas Market 15 Nov - 24 Dec 2008

Find your family Hostels

The square in front of Vienna's town hall (Rathausplatz) is given over to stalls selling crafts, food and gifts at a Christmas Market that has been in existence for over 700 years.

Along with traditional Viennese Christmas treats such as cotton candy, glazed fruits and baked apples, visitors can enjoy perusing the hundreds of wooden handicraft stalls, where present-buying can be a pleasure rather than a chore.

The market takes in the area outside of the town hall, which is transformed into a land of Christmas magic with trees, lights and decorations.

After strolling around the bustling market stalls, head for the Rathauspark nearby, where giant candles adorn the trees and children can go for rides on ponies, the miniature railway or an old-fashioned merry-go-round.

Special present-making and cookie-baking workshops for kids take place in the Volkshalle of the town hall. Don't miss the famous advent choir concerts, held in the Festival Halls of the town hall, with carols sung by touring choirs from all over the world, held during the last three weekends of the advent season.
