Of all christmas markets in Vienna we liked this one the most! It is placed in the yard of the Schloss Schonbrunn with the beautiful view on the castle. The stands were mostly with handcrafted, original products - decorations, toys, tablecloths, candles made of bees wax, natural soaps. There were also stands with local food -sausages, soups, filled potatoes, spaetzli,... More

My sister and I just return from our trip to The Christmas Markets in Germany and Austria through Gate 1 Travel. We had a wonderful stress free time. From the start to the finish. We had Michael who has been a tour guide for 30 years told us the traditions of the countries for Christmas. So much knowledge and interesting... More

This Christkindlmarkt is like the other ones in Vienna, but with the gorgeous castle as its backdrop, and a slightly different assortment of merchandise being sold, it is a spot you ought to go if at all possible. See the castle, visit the oldest zoo in the world (on the castle grounds), and grab some mouthwatering potatoes, wild boar meatloaf,... More

This to me was the true Vienna. A lovely Christmas market, in a beautiful setting, with classical music playing in the background. The stalls were all hand made crafts, which meant that you were able to buy things that you don't see elsewhere. Nice gluhwein stalls too- just wish there was a seating area, for it to have been perfect.... More

one of the most beautiful christmas markets of vienna. it's not too big, but there are also a lot of food/drink shops, and the atmosphere is magic. if you are lucky you will also hear some christmas carols live. of course the palace itself looks amazing, perfect place for some holiday pictures

What a beautiful location for a Christmas Market - right in front of this amazing palace. Europe has many, many of these markets, and Vienna has its share, but this particular market was one of the best that we visited. Most of the vendors were selling locally made goods, and there was a great variety of goods for sale. All... More

I have been traveling around Europe and have seen some pretty amazing Christmas markets and this particular one is stunning. Breathtaking views on the walk there followed by the best view in the market. A definitely must.

The items in this market are very nice. The location is fabulous. It is one of the best markets in the city but still don't miss the other markets to compare.

Great market with some beautiful hand made items. It was lovely to see the embroidered decorations being made on the stall and to know they were not imported. I did feel sorry for the cold hands though! The velvet and gold thread decoration now has pride of place on my Christmas tree.

I wanted to visit the Christmas Market in Vienna for almost 20 years. We've spent an afternoon and an evening in the Schonbrunn Castle and the Christmas market. It is a must to visit this venue, try on of the punches, teas and waffels. It has its special charm. If you buy a punch, you get a cup with picture... More
