Advent Fairytale in Vienna

14 November to 24th December 2016 (TBC)

'Magic of Advent in Vienna’
will once again enchant its visitors in front and inside the Vienna City Hall. In the very heart of Vienna between City Hall and Burgtheater you may experience the most wonderful winter fairytale the former Imperial City has to offer.

Embedded in Vienna’s historical city centre on the magnificent Ringstrasse this traditional Viennese Christmas market mediates a unique flair. Visitors will find the most tasteful Christmas decorations, gifts for all generations and ’Viennese specialities’ at the market with the brightly shining Christmas tree.

The most delightful surprise awaits you in the park in front of the City Hall: wonderful trees decorated with red hearts, angels, lanterns and much more. Christmas plays are performed at the Punch and Judy show, and there is a lot to see and hear in the small pavilions. Dwarfs, teddy bears and other figures fascinate and enchant children and grown-ups alike.

’Christkindls Werkstatt’, which is located in the City Hall, is a truly marvellous place: thousands of children make cookies and handicraft all kinds of Christmas presents.

Amidst the Christmas cheer in front of the City Hall you may see the Vienna Christ Child late in the afternoon. Or it is visiting some old people’s homes or hospitals to bring a little bit of Christmas spirit to all those who cannot come to the Magic of Advent for themselves.

Opening times
Sun - Thur 10am - 9.30pm
Fri - Sat 10am - 10pm
Christmas Eve 10am - 5pm
