As this list makes clear, Austria is a must-visit for Christmas market aficionados. In the capital city of Vienna, a market tradition dating back to 1298 lives on today in the form of romantic lights, snowflakes and the whiff of roasting chestnuts.
Explore glittering lights, ride a Ferris wheel and go ice skating while choirs sing at the Viennese Dream Christmas Market.
A baroque adventure awaits at one of Vienna’s iconic architectural treasures, Christmas Village Belvedere Palace, with over 40 shopping stalls and timeless local treats.
And the Christmas Village Altes AKH delivers an authentic feel with its traditional shopping and abundant glühwein, Austria’s traditional mulled wine, typically spiced with oranges and cinnamon.
