Of all the Christmas Markets we visited on a four week trip through Germany, including Prague and other markets in Vienna, this Market was poor in comparison. Schonbrunn Castle market has a splendid castle backdrop to showcase a market however little effort was made to decorate the stalls to give that Christmas feeling. Stalls were just identical plain cabins with... More

We visited the Scoenbrunn christmas market after our second visit to the Palace. Surely there you can feel the spirit of Christmas with all the happy and laughing people. There were so many stalls selling interesting and delicious food (most of it not very healthy though), mulled wine and punsch, souvenirs and Christmas tree toys. Some of them were offering... More

Lots of good food and hot drinks. Some nice stuff to buy, but food was the star here. Great hot potato salad.

Vienna was the last stop on our cruise with Uniworld Tours. We visited markets all the way down the Danube from Nuremberg to Vienna and we enjoyed this market as much if not more than most of the others. It's true there is a lt of the same stuff in all the markets but maybe it was because we just... More

One of our favourite Christmas markets during our week long visit to Vienna. This one had the great back drop of the Schonbrunn Palace, live music, and great little kiosks to choose from. One in particular sold Christmas "punch" and you got to keep the mug. This one had the Christmas feel that your looking for. Busy but festive. Being... More

While the market in front of City Hall closes on 24th of December (very stupid thing to do), there are several other "christmas" or "new years" markets in the city that are opened even after the 24th. The worst thing about all of them is that they just close too soon in the evening. While there are quite a lot... More

Visited Schonbrunn Palace as part of optional tours from Trafalgar Tours. The local guide,Peter took us around the palace. The exhibits and public view rooms are fantastic to look at. The gardens are huge and expanse. Since it was Christmas Eve we were there early to beat the crowd and the Christmas market in front only opened around 10.30 am.

The christmas market was beautiful, with many options for visitors to buy christmas toys and other souvenirs. A must try is the hot wine. 5 minutes walk from the schonbrunn station, you can combine it with a visit at the Schonbrunn Palace.

One of the nicest Christmas Markets in Vienna. It's worth the trip by metro or any other means to visit. A visit to the Schönbrunn Palace is a must also, and in the meantime you can take a stroll around the good number of stalls that showcase different type of traditional exhibits such as honey products, leather articles, fashion garments...

As other Christmas markets, this one has it specials. It's situated in beautiful place, there's enough room for many people. Try good food, gluhwein, punch, domestic products etc. Highly recommended place while in Vienna it this time of year.
