Christmas Eve Dinner at Weikersdorf Castle from Vienna

Enjoy Christmas Goose with your Celebratory Dinner

After pickup from your Vienna hotel, travel to the Renaissance-era Weikersdorf Castle hotel in Baden for your Christmas Eve celebration. As you approach Weikersdorf Castle, you'll be awed by the magnificent setting of the Vienna Woods, which are forested highlands that form the northeastern foothills of the Northern Limestone Alps.

When you arrive at Weikersdorf Castle, your guide will explain its history and point out the Renaissance architecture. Dating back to the 13th century, the castle was rebuilt in 1971 and is today used as part of the Vienna Woods Hotel.

Step inside the castle-like hotel and take your seat at the table to enjoy a delicious 4-course dinner of regional specialities. Your special Christmas Eve dinner is accompanied by live entertainment! Enjoy traditional Christmas music from zither players as you sip wine, enjoy your food, and soak up the festive, old-world atmosphere.

After dinner, take a short walk from Weikersdorf Castle to the Parish Church of St Christopher for a Christmas mass followed by a re-creation of the Nativity Scene -- the perfect ending to your Austrian Christmas experience.

Your Christmas tour to the Baden Schloss was the best Christmas I have ever had. I want especially to thank our guide, for her excellent guidance. She deserves a big thanks from all our friends. The zither player was special, and the food wonderful. I am an old man now, and I will remember your tour always as the epitome of generousity and friendship. Thank you sll so much, and Happy New Year.

Thoroughly enjoyable experience! However, I didn't get a real castle feel since the place is a hotel and spa with a medieval interior look and feel. The mass was held in a nearby parish and not a cathedral. Aside from these slight differences than the expectations, the overall experience is great and the Austrian hospitality is great.
