Wonderful Christmas Market, with authentic touch. Shops are in line with Christmas spirit. Hot wine is a must if you go there.

Had the wonderful opportunity to visit this amazing market last year, especially with the Schoebrunn palace in the background. Loved the mulled wines, music , atmosphere and wonderful stalls.

If you are into Christmas and Christmas-y stuff, you will just love this market. Naturally, it's not only about the market. Visiting the palace is a must too and this is exactly what we did. Once you get to the market you will be able to enjoy a great view of the palace and you will find yourself in a... More

This was my wife's favorite thing in Vienna. If you like Christmas this is the place. With the beautiful golden hued Schoebrunn Palace as a backdrop this Christmas market is a buzz with energy. With many stalls selling food, drinks and Christmas items there is something for everyone. Try the mulled wine on a cold night, and the fresh roasted... More

A nice Christmas market, a little bit out of the city and a little bit less tacky compared to done of the central ones. Nice setting, and nice range of stalls and sights.

After visiting the wonderful Schownbrunn Palace we couldn't wait to explore the fantastic Christmas markets. All sorts of wonderful stalls with fascinating treasures with hot wine, delicious food treats. I bought all sorts of Christmas presents for the family. It was freezing cold, so warm up snugly. Suggest you have cash when visiting markets.

Really well organised Christmas Market in true Viennese style. One can take in the aroma of the freshly baked breads, heated mulled wine and fried sausages spread about in the air. Additionally, in spite of my aim to not indulge in freshly baked chocolate chip cookies I couldn't control my urges and ended up getting a couple of boxes.

We visited the palace market as part of a trip to Vienna. Of ll of the Christmas Markets we visited (Nuremburg, Passau, Budapest) on the river cruise, this was by far the most upscale in terms of food choice and the products being sold. If you can get there I highly recommend it as a very good example of a... More

A very beautiful Christmas market, do not miss the gluwein in the cold weather!! The only shortcoming is it is really crowded and beware of pickpockets.

The market as you can probably tell from the other reviews is authentic and fun. It's nice to talk to the actual artisans and see the results of their hard work. One thing I really enjoyed was the fact there are no flashy banners or advertising from major companies (e.g. Pepsi, McDonald's, Red Bull etc.) It's all original which allows... More

Staying in Hietzing

Neighborhood Profile
Vienna’s 13th district has always been in the shadow of Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens, but has interesting hidden gems waiting to be discovered. Allow half a day for the imposing Habsburg residence and the gardens with Gloriette belvedere. Reserve the other half to discover the secret charms of this posh residential neighborhood. Sneak out of the gardens at Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down Hietzinger Hauptstrasse for Kaiserpavillon (Emperor’s pavilion), an Art Nouveau gem right on top of U4’s metro railtracks. At local institutions Café Dommayer and restaurant Plachutta you can mingle with residents, their families and friends. Dommayer has risen to fame since waltz king Johann Strauss and his orchestra performed there regularly. If you want to go beyond private villa gazing visit Klimtvilla and Hermesvilla. Art Nouveau genius Gustav Klimt had his last studio in a now beautifully renovated villa, which is open during spring and summer. Hermesvilla at Lainzer Tiergarten animal enclosure and nature park is a must for all romantics and fans of Empress Sissi.
