Almost exactly one year ago, I woke up on Christmas morning to arrive at at Schönbrunn Castle in Vienna for a tour of the castle and the chance to enjoy one last Christmas market. I’m still not quite sure how I made it there “alive”. I was tired (with only a few hours sleep), completely hung over and yet still at 10 AM I managed to stroll through the freezing cold weather with a cup of hot wine in hand. The best cure for a hangover is more to drink, right?
I think Christmas markets beside castles have become my favorite! I simply love castles in general, like the one in Soriano Nel Cimino or the one in Prague but a Christmas market beside a castle like the one in Berlin or this one in Vienna take the cake.
And if you’re interested in learning more about the romantic history of the castle, check out the Schönbrunn Castle website.
This concludes the cherylhoward.com Christmas market tour that brought you to the markets of Prague, Bratislava, Berlin and Vienna. Hope to see some of you at a market next year! Start making your plans to visit a European Christmas market now.
