The Christmas spirit is alive and well in the city of Vienna. I had an amazing time eating cookies and sampling pastries. The smell of mulled wine fills the air and lights sparkle in the trees.

Have not been for a couple of years but have booked to go back this coming December. This has a wonderful atmosphere. Most of the others are good but this is the best. My tip - avoid the Rathaus market, I found it tacky and awful!

Coming from Australia, Christmas in Vienna is a treat.
i was lucky to have a white Christmas, drink gluh wine and eat traditional Austrian winter foods , such as roasted chestnutss, potato fritters and biscuits.
I was also able to visit christmas markets such as Shoenbrunn and Maria Therese Markt
If the Rathaus Markt is too overwhelming but you are eager to experience a market in Vienna, I suggest going to the Schonnebrunn Palace Market and the Maria Therese Platz Market.
Whilst smaller than the Rathaus Market I felt them to be both friendlier and more Christmassy, and wonderful photo ops.
This was a lovely smallish market in an outstanding location.
The Tree that sits infront of the stairs of the palace is HUGE!
the stalls are easily accessible and the food yummy Austrian fair.

The lure of the Christmas markets was what brought us to Vienna in winter a couple of years ago, and we were hooked. This one is spread out in the vast courtyard in front of the Schonbrunn, giving visitors a place to grab a bite before tackling the palace itself. But there are unique markets all over town. Our favorites are at the Freyung and Spittelberg areas, where there are a lot of handcrafted items. We also love the one at the Karlskirche, with ponies and llamas and a big area where children can play in heaps of clean straw. The largest market is at the Rathaus. One evening we went inside and found lively workshops where children could make presents for the friends and families. The markets are not so much about shopping as about being outside enjoying life. Many of them have stages for musical performances. People of all ages are at these markets, all day and into the evenings. This is a very good reason to travel to Vienna in winter. I think the markets end at Christmas.
