Vienna Christmas Market Day Tour from Prague
Monday & Thursday - November 12 to December 26, 2016.
Vienna is known for it’s picturesue buildings and beautiful decorations anytime of the year. The Austrian flair for esthetics is visable everywhere you look. This is especially true at Christmas.
From mid-November to Christmas, Vienna’s prettiest squares transform into magical Christmas markets. The aroma of Christmas bakery items and hot punch creates a pre-Christmas atmosphere.
At the traditional Vienna Magic of Advent, the Rathausplatz becomes a shining fairytale land. The 150 or so sales booths at the Christmas market offer Christmas gifts, Christmas tree decorations, sweets and warming drinks. The trees of the surrounding City Hall park are festively decorated and radiate in a sea of lights. There are lots of offers here for children in particular, such as a carousel and craft fun in the Christmas Workshop.
Not far away is the Christmas village on Maria-Theresien-Platz, situated between the Museum of Fine Arts and the Natural History Museum. Over 70 booths offering traditional handicrafts and original gift ideas are set up here during Advent; the Christmas Village is replaced by the New Year’s Village on 27 December. The romantic Christmas village in the Old AKH is also a popular meeting point during the run-up to Christmas, especially for the younger crowd. There are two curling lanes right in the Christmas village.
Take a semi-private tour to Vienna to visit the Christmas Markets as well as do some holiday shopping. Monday, Wednesday and Friday has been especially selected so you don't run into the biggest crowds. Those are during the weekend. Enjoy less people and more fun in Vienna.
