Best Christmas Markets to visit in Austria

From late November to Christmas eve, you have a chance to enjoy flowing punch, traditional toys, delicious treats, and light shows. Make sure you visit these famous Christmas markets in Austria.

  • 1. Innsbruck Old Town Christmas Market

    Nestled beneath the shadow of the snowy Alpine mountain range, Innsbruck naturally lends itself to a special Christmas atmosphere. There are a number of Christmas markets in the city to choose from, but the highlight is undoubtedly the Old Town Christmas market. Here, you can sip on some Glühwein as you take in the twinkling lights reflecting off the famous Golden Roof of this beautifully preserved medieval section of the city.

  • 2. Vienna Christmas Village

    Located at Maria-Theresien Platz, the Vienna Christmas Village is a winter wonderland filled with decorated stalls and delicious food. Located between the Museum of Natural History and the Museum of Art, it offers hours of fun for both young and old.

  • 3. Salzburg

    The birthplace of Mozart, Salzburg at Christmas time is a little journey into the past. Old but well-preserved buildings topped with snow set the scene. On the streets, the smell of mulled wine and traditional food draws you along from one stall to the next. Many of the markets are set against the backdrop of spectacular locations, such as the Weihnachtsmarkt in front of the Mirabell Palace and its gardens, or the Hohensalzburg fortress market, where cannons blaze a round of fire to ring in Christmas itself.
