Christmas Markets in Austria
By Viator, September 2016
Austria’s largest and oldest market is the December Market in Vienna, which dates back to the 14th century and is today one of the most popular of the capital’s many Christmas markets. Alternatively, head to Graz, where the Graz City Hall - transformed into a gigantic Advent calendar – is the backdrop to its festive market; pay a visit to the Innsbruck Christmas market which sprawls throughout the Old Town, as well as atop the 2,800 foot high Hungerburg; or try your hand at crafting your own gifts and ornaments at the Linz Christmas Markets.
With the snow-blanketed Alps in the background, Salzburg comes alive at Christmastime and a Private Tour of Salzburg’s Christmas Markets is a perfect way to get in the yuletide spirit, including visits to the Adventmarkt of St. Jakob am Thurn in the Old Town, the St. Leonhard Christmas Market, famed for its unique Bavarian handicrafts and the Hellbrunn market, situated in front of the breathtaking Hellbrunn Palace. There’s no reason to stay in the city, either – take a Christmas Markets Tour from Salzburg, where you can take a boat trip to the picturesque villages around Lake Wolfgang, visit the famous Christmas nativity in Strobel and shop for gifts at the Christmas market of St. Wolfgang.
