I visit Vienna regularly during the winter, but it was my first visit to this market. It is small, across several small strets, but it offers everything the bigger markets have plus a cosy feeling. Definitely would recommend it if you're near Spittelberg.

If you visit Vienna for the Christmas markets then this is definitely one to see. It has a different ambience to the other markets which can feel very samey once you have walked down one row.
Here you can find a collection of different items and is well worth a visit. It is situated along 3 alleys and so has a feel of a street market as well.

There are lots of Christmas markets in Vienna and I actually like each and every one of them. Each has its own character that sets is apart from the others. And although the market by the Rathaus is the largest and most well known, the market in Spittelberg is the most intimate and possibly the least expensive of them all. Unlike the other markets which are in a plaza, the Spittelberg market is amongst narrow, cobblestone streets, intermingled with restaurants, bars and artist studios. It is unique and incredibly charming.

Of course I'm not the only one who thinks this as the market is absolutely packed. It can be a challenge to navigate the crowds. But grab a punch and take it all in!

Spittelberg is just a couple of blocks behind the MuseumsQuartier so it really isn't too hard to find.

We went here after it was recommended to us the year before. I found it a bit too busy which wasn't helped by the fact that the streets are so narrow when the stalls are set up. There was a man giving away wire Xmas decorations for donations which we had read about and that was nice. Worth a look as it is so different to the other Xmas markets in Vienna.

As a yearly Christmas traveler to Vienna I have been to many of the Christmarket's and in my humble opinion the Spittelberg is by far the least commercial of all of them. I was there after traveling 10 hrs on a plane from NYC to Wein. The Market takes place in the tiny streets and alleyways of Wein. I also would like to mention that they have the best "Gluwein or Punsh of any of them. Do try some as it will keep you warm and traveling from stall to stall in the cold Wein nights. Be prepared to Not pick up cheap things from China. This is the real thing and .....did I mention the pasteries? This place is remarkable - it really is a must for a traveler to Wein to see. Enjoy!

Plenty of Christmas Markets are happening throughout Viena during Christmas time but this one very lovely and definitely worth checking out. Its mostly popular by locals and prices seem cheeper then in other Markets.

Having visited over 10 different Christmas markets this past winter in Vienna, this market combined the best of local boutique stores, restaurants and crafts. No cheesy imports or schlock. Spanning three blocks there is plenty of variety, and it's all local. Put this one on your list if you visit during the winter holiday season.

Christmas markets were on my bucket list and this one did not disappoint. It was cold, but the warm spiced wine made that easy to handle. I went to 5 different markets in Germany, Austria and Prague but this was one of the best. Purchased lots of authentic one of a kind items. If this is your thing, go!

Personally I find the Spittelberg Christmas market, the best one in Vienna: located in the city, just outside the center but within historic streets. Also, high quality stands, plus great shops on the street which add to the overall high quality impression.
To get there, best take subway line 3 to Volkstheater, then walk up the street from the exit - after about 100m the 3 or 4 streets of the Spittelberg area are to your left and you'll notice the area right away. And don't hesitate to go into the pubs in those streets as they're very nice and will be a welcome place to warm your body with some Glühwein.

We spent four days in Vienna in late November 2016 and it was wonderful. We would recommend not only the markets but exploring Vienna as well. It is a beautiful city.
