Your evening will begin with pickup from your hotel in central Vienna, where you’ll meet up with your guide. Travel to Baden by coach, soaking up views of the majestic Vienna Woods as you come upon the Weikersdorf Castle. Pass the forested highlands that comprise the foothills of the Northern Limestone Alps.
Arrive at the 13th-century castle and learn about the structure’s Renaissance architecture from your guide. Renovated in 1971, the castle is today part of the Vienna Woods Hotel.
Settle into your seat in the castle’s dining area and indulge in a 4-course dinner of traditional specialties, such as Christmas goose with potato dumplings and pyramid cake. (See a sample menu in the Itinerary section.) Sip on fine regional wine and enjoy live Christmas music to keep the mood festive while you dine.
With your appetite sated, step out for a walk to the nearby Church of St Christopher. Attend a Christmas midnight mass and see an Austrian-style Nativity scene, for a unique holiday experience.
Your evening will conclude with transportation back to Vienna after the mass.
