Many Christmas markets are a rip-off, where you pay through your nose for pseudo-artistic junk, watery and sugary concoctions trying to be mulled wine, and bad food. The Schönbrunn Christmas Market is different, so different that also the locals love it come here in large numbers. I live around the corner and attend regularly every winter. The place is romantic... More

The Schoenbrunn Cmas market was one of our favorite markets (we tried 7 or 8). We came for the palace tour, of course, but found the market quite nice. The stalls seemed to mainly be quality goods with a lot of good cheer. The only downside is the number of people smoking at the tables near the food stalls. Ready... More

We took the Amawaterways cruise along the Danube River in early Dec 2013. All the markets were fabulous but I think the best ones were in Vienna. The Schoenbrunn Palace market had a great selection of Christmas items at very fair prices. They also had many booths which sold food so we toured the palace in the afternoon and then... More

Visiting the Christmas Markets in Vienna is a wonderful experience: they offer locally produced arts, crafts, and food. They are tents arranged in clusters in pre-designated areas of Vienna, and exist only for the Christmas season. It is a great way to taste all the local food: from chocolates to sausages to mulled wine. The Schoenbrunn Palace market is particularly... More

There are other markets more grand than this one, but a combined palace tour followed by a visit to the market make it an evening to remember!

I've been to most of the Christmas markets in Vienna and was really surprised when I found this market to be the best. It's set up is great and all the handicrafts are nice and from Europe -- nothing from China. The prices were typical of a Christmas market -- I found the Ulbricht nutcrackers priced the same here at... More

When in Vienna recently I visited the Schoenbrunn Christmas market and I was disappointed. The market is located in a great location and has the usual stalls to get you in the mood with Gluhwein and hot food. My disappointment was with the quality of general stalls and other items for sale. I expected more local artists, with handcrafts etc... More

I liked this Christmas market a lot because of the elegance of the place, the very clean arrangement of the stalls and because many sellers were the ones who produced the products. Many items are expensive, but well worth the money!
