Best Christmas Markets – Subjective selection

Due to Corona Christmas markets in Vienna are closed (lockdown) at the moment. However, there’s hope for them to reopen somewhere around December 12. The good news about this? You don’t need to travel here anymore to be able to visit one of the markets, you can now do so online! Meanwhile, a few addresses where you could go for the virtual experience and get yourself in the winter holiday mood 🎄

At Regionalis you find Austrian products only, many producers ship free of charge, and some even across the country border.

The virtual Christmas Market Lights-On sells Christmas products, but there is also a corresponding program for the holidays. From cookie baking sessions to making handicrafts to yoga and salsa classes, you find a wide range of choices on this online platform. The idea is to share experiences together to create a Christmas atmosphere even without physical presence at the Christmas market. Don’t forget to turn off your heating and open your windows when drinking self-made punch! 😉

The famous Christmas Dream in front of the city hall has set up an online market, too.

We call x-mas markets “Christkindlmarkt”, my Top3:

#1 Art Advent at Karlsplatz (photo)
romantic, kid-friendly, organic.

#2 Spittelberg
tucked away in tiny hilly cobblestone alleys.

#3 Weihnachtsdorf at university campus Altes AKH
quiet campus site, which once was a hospital.

Remember, this is temporary – see you 2022!
