Situated in front of the Rathausplatz this market draws the biggest crowds. Plenty of stalls many different to the usual you'll find at xmas markets. Also a large ice skating area which looked a lot of fun.

Together with colleagues and friends we decided to visit the Christmas market in Vienna. We arrived at 11:00 when we had the first punch and the place looked empty. I had chocolate punch with plums and it was one of the best Christmas drinks I ever had. They also sell Slovak/Czech trdelnik and I also encountered caramel apples. You can... More

Even though I visited the market during morning hours, it was very impressive with a great variety of things to see, buy and eat. Since I scouted the city with bikes and seen several markets - this is the best to my humble opinion. The only weakness of it is the location - near the main road, which makes it... More

We stayed just behind city hall which was an excellent location for accessing the main Christmas market and cross the main road to access an array of high end shops, bars and restaurants.

Njoy a colorful evening in the ongoing Christmas market. Lots of stalls for food, drinks, decorative items, winter wear, chocolates etc. Tip- I suggest you explore first and then buy, you might find better stuff at good price!

If you're visiting Vienna for the Christmas experience then this should be your first stop. It's huge and with dozens of stalls selling everything from candles to decorations to toys, many food and drink stalls inbetween them too. Souvenirs and decorations are expensive for what you get and most things can be found in the other markets (and souvenir shops)... More

Visited the Christmas market here on Saturday evening. Huge numbers of stalls selling the usual Christmas gifts, decoration and food & drink. A lovely setting with the Rathaus beautifully lit and a large Christmas tree in front. There is an ice rink too.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
