Christkindlmarkt am Rathausplatz In Vienna, Austria – Estimated reading time: 7 minutes

One of the best things about living in Europe is the Christmas markets! It’s one of my favourite things to do every year and makes the holiday season all the more festive. Some of my favourite Christmas markets to date are the WeihnachtsZauber Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin, the Christmas Market At Old Town Square In Prague, and the The Bratislava Christmas Market At The Main Square.

Another memorable Christmas market I visited is the Christkindlmarkt am Rathausplatz In Vienna, Austria. At this busy market next to Vienna’s beautiful and historic city hall, I drank mulled wine, ate some sausage, and browsed the Christmas market stalls. Newsletter

Christkindlmarkt am Rathausplatz In Vienna, Austria

The Christkindlmarkt am Rathausplatz is surely one of the most beautiful markets in all of Vienna.

The town hall as the backdrop really sets the scene.

As does the Burgtheater.

With drink (see the header photo with a hot cup of mulled wine), there must be food!

There were also some really pretty Christmas decorations to be found. And also, some other pretty oddball (yet hilarious) items.

  1. Lovely shots! I’ve never been to a Christmas market in Europe, but the more photos and stories I get, the more I see what I’ve been missing. I imagine it to be a place where the spirit is lifted. And by the way, great sephia look on your photos.

  2. @Andrea – thank you.

    @Jarno – there’s one last post to come, the Christmas market at the castle in Vienna. I toured all of these last year and for sure, put me into the Christmas spirit. 🙂

    @Cathy – Vienna has some great markets. Hope you get there too!
