The magic of the Christmas markets in Vienna

Vienna puts on her best clothes to welcome Christmas and all its guests. So many people visit Vienna for Christmas, and I think I know why – here we have one of the most wonderful street decorations in the world. All the streets are well decorated but my favourite are the chandeliers on the Graben – impressive and elegant at the same time.

But it’s not only the festive decoration on the streets that impress so much – the Christmas markets also offer a great experience. The one at Rathausplatz (the Vienna city hall) is the most visited, but there are so many others that don’t fall very much  behind. Some examples are the markets at Maria-Theresien-Platz, the one at Schloss Belvedere and Schloss Schonbrunn, the one at Karlsplatz, at Unicampus in the 9th, etc.

And although there is no snow (yet), neither are the temperatures too low, the Christmas mood is in the air. With great pleasure I walked through this market, wrapped in one of my all so favrorite teddy bear coats. Underneath I have a checked skirt and the outfit gets complete with comfortable long sock boots and a matching tiny black bag.
