Planning a Christmas Trip

Morning all.

Me and my girlfriend and thinking about going away at the start of December for a few nights to do some Christmas shopping and see a Christmas market etc. Vienna has popped up on the search.

I have looked into hotels and the Sofitel Stephansdom looks ideal, is there much Christmas market stuff around here..? Or should I look in a different area? Ideally within walking distance.

We'd probably like to see a show aswell, any recommendations? Preferably English speaking :)

Any other hints or tips would be much appreciated

Thanks

There are several Christmas Markets in Vienna but most of them are walkable from your Hotel choice and to Schönbrunn you can take the Ubahn.

Wnich short of show are you interested?

For musicals and opera you can check

Vereinigte Bühnen Wien http://www.vbw.at/index.php/en/17574

but the musicals will be in German.

Enjoy a nice operetta or opera at Volksoper

they have often English subtitles.
