It has only been a couple of days since the Christmas markets in Vienna closed. Some remained open until January 8th, while others closed around Christmas. Even though they have barely managed to clean up the mess, the planning has already started for the Christmas markets in Vienna in 2023. Even though we don’t have the dates for most of the Christmas markets (yet), the Christmas market at Präter has already announced its upcoming Christmas market in 2023.
The Christmas market at Präter opens on November 18th in 2023 and remains open until January 7th in 2024. This is a great market with stalls, food, a giant amusement park (which is there all year around), and a stage with almost daily concerts. In other words, a fantastic place to visit if you want to have fun and enjoy a Christmas market in Vienna.
Why is this important?
The Christmas markets follow trends and patterns. In 2022, the Christmas market at Präter opened at the same day as the Christmas market at Rathausplatz and the Christmas market at Schönbrunn. As a result, we can make a wild guess and expect the same to happen in 2023. If that is so, you can expect most of the Christmas markets in Vienna to open on November 18 in 2023. If you want to be sure, you can add one week to the estimation. What do I mean? If the Christmas markets don’t open on November 18, they will for sure open on November 25.
Order a plane ticket to Vienna and come on November 18. You will surely be able to visit the Christmas market at Präter, and most likely the Christmas market at Spittelberg (as it normally opens one week earlier than the Christmas market at Präter). Whether or not the Christmas markets at Schönbrunn and Rathausplatz will open on November 18 remains unsure, but you will have plenty of things to do in Vienna.
There are several other Christmas markets in Vienna opening earlier than the Christmas markets at Rathausplatz and Schönbrunn. As a result, you can expect there to be Christmas markets at Freyung, Hof, and Stephansplatz by November 18 in 2023 as well.

The earliest Christmas markets in Vienna will open on November 11th, while the biggest and most popular markets at the Rathausplatz and at Scönbrunn will open one week later.
Most markets will remain open until December 23rd or December 26th, but the Schönbrunn market will turn into a New Years Market after Christmas and remain open until January 4th in 2023.
What about the Easter market?
Two and a half months after the New Years Market at Schönbrunn has closed, it is time for the Easter Market that will open on March 25th in 2023. This will remain open for 1 1/2 weeks, and it is a fantastic way to enjoy a market with a nice atmosphere, combined with the wonderful surroundings of the Schönbrunn castle!
Vienna has several Christmas Markets and they are all known to be among the best in all of Europe. What is especially cool in Vienna is that every Christmas Market has its own cup which you can buy, and of course, drink hot chocolate and glühwein from it. So, if you visit all the different markets, you can return home with ten different cups if you would like to!
The most famous Christmas market in Vienna is the one at the Rathausplatz in front of the City Hall. This is very beautiful, especially in the evening as the house of the city council is illuminated. But there are several other Christmas Markets to be visited in Vienna. The Schönbrunn Palace has a great Christmas Market, you can find another one in front of Karlskirche, there is an untraditional but brilliant market at Spittelberg, and the list could go on forever.
If you want to experience a real Christmas atmosphere, Vienna is one of the best cities to visit in Europe. Read further about some of the different markets, and check out the dates of the different Christmas markets in the list under this text.
Rathausplatz Christmas market dates 2023: November 18/25, 2023 – December 26, 2023 The 2023 dates are not yet published, but we expect the markets to open on either November 18 or November 25 based on the pattern from earlier years.

This is the most popular and famous Christmas market in Vienna. It is much more than just a market. Here you can find many programs for adults and kids, including an ice skating rink, a magical train, beautiful lights, and so much more. This is the place to go if you want to take fantastic photos.
SchönbrunnChristmas market dates 2023: November 18/25, 2023 – January 5th, 2024 The 2023 dates are not yet published, but we expect the markets to open on either November 18 or November 25 based on the pattern from earlier years.

2019: November 23 – December 26
2018: November 18 – December 26
The Christmas market by Schönbrunn is located quite far from the city center, but it is still very popular due to the fantastic surrounding of the market. The Schönbrunn castle is an attraction in itself and you can walk in the park for hours all year round. There is a fantastic view if you visit the Glorietta, and families will enjoy visiting the zoo in the park. The market has beautiful illumination at night, and since you should visit Schönbrunn anyway, this is a win-win situation.
SpittelbergChristmas market dates 2023: November 10/17, 2023 – December 23rd, 2023 The 2023 dates are not yet published, but we expect the markets to open on either November 10 or November 17 based on the pattern from earlier years.
2022: November 11 – December 23
2019: November 14 – December 23
2018: November 18 – December 23
This isn’t a traditional Viennese Christmas market. It doesn’t have magical illumination at a giant square. Instead, this is a market located in tiny streets where you walk up and down. People stand in the middle of the street and drink their hot wine, and the stores in the area are a natural part of the Christmas market. In a way, this is Vienna’s most special Christmas market, and you should definitely visit it.
Wintermarkt Präter Christmas market dates 2023: November 18, 2023 – January 7, 2024 These are the official dates for this year’s Christmas market at Präter.
2023: November 18, 2023 – January 7, 2024
2022: November 19, 2022 – January 8, 2023
Präter is a fantastic area in Vienna. Here you can enjoy a giant Ferris Wheel and enjoy an adrenaline kick as you pay to ride one of the many roller coasters in the area. Before Christmas, a big winter market is added to the area, and it certainly has a traditional Christmas market atmosphere. Once again, this is an area you should visit anyway, and because of the Christmas market, you just got one more excuse to do so. There are daily concerts from Wednesday to Sunday at 19.00 during the entire period of the event.
What can you buy at the Christmas markets in Vienna?
As you visit the Christmas markets in Vienna, you will find many similar objects at the different Christmas markets. Obviously, there are differences, but you will also see many similarities between the different markets.
One of the most important things you will find at every Christmas market in Vienna is the hot wine, often referred to as glühwein. Since the wine has been boiled, it normally comes without alcohol, but the taste of alcohol and wine is strongly present in the drink. As a result, most kids dislike the traditional hot wine served at the different Christmas markets. Hot wine, or mulled wine, or glüh wine, also consists of some additional spices (depending on who makes it). Cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and nutmeg are some of the most used spices.
If the kids don’t like the hot wine, they feel otherwise about the chimney cake. This is often referred to as the Sekler Cake, a sweet dough with sugar grilled and later dipped in cinnamon, cocoa, walnut, or vanilla. If you choose the cinnamon taste it reminds you quite a lot of cinnamon buns, just that it is much bigger and incredibly delicious. It might be that this is a favorite of kids, but don’t worry, adults love it as well.
It is very normal to find fruits covered with chocolate as well. This is another favorite of adults and kids as you get apples, strawberries, and other chocolate-covered fruits.
Would you like some more serious food? There are several options at the Christmas markets in Vienna.
This region is well known for delicious meat, and also sausages. As a result, you will find sausages of all kinds at the Christmas markets in Vienna. Some are filled with paprika, onion, and spices, while other sausages are more harmless and with less taste.
Another tasty thing you can enjoy at several Christmas markets is warm soup served in bread buns. What tastes better than a warm goulash soup, or maybe a pumpkin cream soup or a garlic cream soup in minus 5 degrees in the evening while enjoying the beautiful illumination of the Christmas markets in Vienna?
Austria is also known for its tasty cheese. Consequently, you will find several stalls where you can buy traditional cheese from Austria of all sorts. These are just some examples of what you should eat and drink at the different Christmas markets in Vienna.
Would you rather buy a souvenir, a present, or something else? You can find all sorts of objects and handicrafts at the markets.
Are you looking for some handmade soap consisting only of natural ingredients? It is very likely that you will find this if you visit the different Christmas markets in Vienna. Would you rather buy some toys for your children? There are often handmade toys available in several stalls.
One typical thing to buy is Christmas decorations. You can buy a model of Joseph and Mary in the stable with their Jesus child, or maybe some decorations that you can hang on your Christmas tree. Does it sound more interesting with a candle holder surrounded by beautiful glass that makes it shine in all sorts of colors? You will find them in all sorts of shapes and sizes if you go to the Christmas markets in Vienna.
The ladies will also find the earrings, rings, purses, wallets, and similar objects extremely tempting.
There are so many options. The best thing you can do is to set aside several hours and just visit all the different Christmas markets in Vienna. You will find so much more than this. The great thing is that there are changes from year to year. As a result, you will always see things you haven’t seen before and find objects you didn’t know you needed (before you actually see them).
A nice walk to help you discover some of the nicest Christmas markets in Vienna.
It is healthy to walk. So, why not discover some of Vienna’s most popular and beautiful Christmas markets on foot? Here we will share a fantastic stroll that will take you through beautiful streets and simultaneously bump into some of the best Christmas markets in Vienna.
Let’s start at Stephansplatz.
Stephansdom is one of the most famous attractions in Vienna. Here you can find a Christmas market as well. It isn’t the biggest, but it is especially good for those hungry and thirsty. You can get here on foot or by metro, making it an ideal place to start our Christmas market tour in Vienna.
When you have finished looking around at the market, walk along Graben (a beautiful street) and at the end, head towards Bognergasse. Here you will find exclusive shopping along the way (Prada, Louis Vuitton, and several other stores). After walking here for a few minutes, you will reach the Christmas market at Hof. This might not be the most famous Christmas market in Vienna, but it is beautiful and worth a visit.
When you are finished visiting the Christmas market at Hof, it is time to walk to the most famous of all Christmas markets in Vienna. The traditional Christmas fair located in front of the city hall (Rathaus) is less than 1km away. If you want a traditional Austrian Wiener schnitzel along the way, stop and have a meal at Cafe Landtmann (located extremely close to Rathausplatz).
Walk towards the Schottengasse, all the way to Schottentor. There you can turn left onto the Universitätsring. You will soon see Café Landtmann on your left side and the beautiful Christmas market at Rathausplatz on your right side.
This is a real Winter Wonderland in Vienna. This is more than just a Christmas market where you can eat and rink. Here you can go ice skating, and there are many other activities available. It might seem trivial, but it is beautiful, especially in the evenings. In other words, you must go there at least once when it is dark. The city hall itself is amazing, and with the lights from the Christmas market, this is one of the most magical places you can go in the world during this time of the year.
This is probably the Christmas market where you will spend most of your time. However, you still have more to discover, so drink your hot wine and get ready to walk along the Universitätsring further until you reach the Burgring. You can then keep walking until you see the monumental buildings of the Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Natural History on your right side. You have arrived at the Maria-Theresien Platz which means you are ready for even more Christmas market shopping).
Once again, this Christmas market is surrounded by two beautiful buildings, which makes it look even better. There are lots of stalls here where you can buy objects and if you have some time left, you should consider visiting one or both the museums at the square.
Above, you can first see the walk from the Christmas market at Rathausplatz to the Christmas market at Maria-Theresien Platz. As you finish there, walk towards Operning (or drop by Hofburg to take pictures first). You will soon see the magnificent opera building in Vienna. Turn left after the opera building, and you are ready to walk onto Kärtner Strasse. This is yet another beautifully decorated street in Vienna, and as you walk straight forward, you will end up at the Stephansplatz by the Stephansdom.
It has been quite a walk, hasn’t it? Are you satisfied? Not only have you seen some of the best Christmas markets in Vienna, but you have also seen many of the city’s most popular sights and attractions.
Would you like more? One of Vienna’s most special Christmas markets is the so-called Spittelberg market. This is located in several small streets not far from the Maria-Theresien Platz. If you use Google Maps, head for Stiftgasse, and you will find what you are looking for. If not, follow the instructions on the map below and take a detour after your trip to the Christmas Market at Maria-Theresien Platz.
The Christmas market at Spittelberg is special because it differs from all the others. It isn’t located in a big square. Instead, it is located on small streets. There are stalls here and there, but many stores in the streets also turn into a natural part of the Christmas market. Consequently, this Christmas market has a special atmosphere that you should enjoy and visit while in Vienna.
We guess you are getting tired by now. If you still have energy left in your legs, you can walk from the Spittelberg market to Mariahilferstrasse for some normal shopping. Would you rather continue your crazy Christmas market walk? Head towards Karlsplatz. It isn’t far away and there you will find yet another Christmas market at a giant square with a beautiful church in the background.
The picture above might seem a bit empty, but it was made in the morning before the market opened. If you use public transportation, this is a spot easy to reach as Karlsplatz is a spot where several subway lines intersect.
Since you are addicted to Christmas markets, you should definitely walk from Karlsplatz to the famous attraction Belvedere. This is yet another attraction that you will love, and you will certainly enjoy the Christmas market at Belvedere as well.
When you have finished this walk, it is probably time to go to bed. If you still want more, the final destination of your Christmas market marathon in Vienna should be Schönbrunn. This final destination is located quite far from the city center, making it a 6,5km walk from Belvedere to Schönbrunn. A much easier way to get to Schönbrunn is by using the metro system which is fast and easy to use in Vienna.
Have you been able to visit the Christmas market at Schönbrunn as well? You can travel home and say with good conscience that you have discovered the most beautiful Christmas markets in Vienna!

In this article, we will give you some recommendations and tips that will help you as you visit Vienna in November/December with the intention of checking out the Christmas markets.
Vienna Christmas market recommendations
Be ready for crowds
Vienna is fantastic before Christmas. As a consequence, you should prepare yourself for crowds everywhere, especially during the weekends. The most famous Christmas market in Vienna, the one in front of the City Hall (Rathausplatz), is the most crowded of them all. It can sometimes be hard to look at all the products at the different stands because of the amount of visitors. Some people enjoy the crowds, but if you do not particularly enjoy them, try visiting the Christmas markets during day-time on weekdays (not weekends). In the afternoon/evening, there will be crowds every single day of the week.
Walk around on foot
As we mentioned in the introduction, Vienna is a fantastic city in the Christmas market season. There are Christmas fairs everywhere. As a result, we recommend you to discover the city center of Vienna on foot. Walk around, feel the smell of the city, and discover Christmas fairs you did not read about in our Vienna Guide or elsewhere on the Internet. Stop to taste some hot wine at a stand somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Bring a GPS (or have Google Maps ready) so that you will find your way back home after walking up and down streets in the center of Vienna because you might end up not actually knowing where you are!
Buy a hot wine mug
As you visit the Christmas markets in Vienna, you are most likely to fall in love with the city. By the time you return home, you will be eager to plan your Christmas market trip to Vienna next year already. One of the nice traditions you can create is to buy the annual Christmas market cup at the fair in front of the City Hall. Every year they produce a new cup, and thus this can be a nice souvenir to bring with you back home.
Bring warm clothes
Do not forget that it can get quite cold in Vienna in November and December. You might not feel it at once, but if you plan on walking around the city for several hours, you might get cold feet, or your ears might get red. Bring some extra warm clothes instead, making sure that you can stay outside for hours without feeling miserable because of the cold.
Eat at the Christmas markets
You might not want to eat all your meals outside at the Christmas markets, but make sure to eat at the Christmas fairs a couple of times. There are so many interesting things to taste, and you will probably have the chance to eat some food you haven’t tasted before. Maybe you are a skeptic who only loves food you love from before, but sometimes you had to fall in love with that food as well, so why not try something new, and maybe you will fall in love once again? If you taste something you do not like, so what? You spent a couple of Euro tasting something, which makes you a few Euro poorer, but an experience richer. We think you will say that it was worth it!
Live in the heart of Vienna
There are Christmas markets everywhere in Vienna. Most of them are located in the heart of Vienna, with some exceptions, for example, the Christmas fair by Schönbrunn. Still, you will save a lot of time if you live in the heart of Vienna, which will give you immediate access to the shopping opportunities Vienna has to offer during this period. You should know that living at a hotel in Vienna is quite expensive, at least if you compare it with Budapest and Prague, but that is a part of what you need to calculate with as you plan your trip to Vienna.
It can get really crowded in Vienna during the Christmas fair season, but not only on the Christmas markets but also in restaurants. As a result, you should book your table at your favorite Vienna restaurant as soon as possible. The same is true if you want to book an airport transfer in Vienna, enjoy a concert or take part in a guided tour of some sort.
Bring your camera
You probably have a good camera on your phone, but if you want to travel back home with some fantastic pictures, you might want to bring your real camera as well. As you visit the Christmas markets you will have plenty of chances to make some awesome pictures, especially in the evenings. But, making a good photo in the evening can be a hard task, so if you have a stand for your camera, bring that with you as well.

You are probably wondering when this years Christmas markets in Vienna will open and close. The most popular Christmas market in front of the City Hall (Rathaus) will open on November 18th and stay open until December 26th (some booths until December 30th).

There are lots of cities in Europe with beautiful Christmas markets. Lots of people praise the markets in Prague and the markets in Budapest. Why do we have the courage and baldness to say that Vienna is the best city in Europe before Christmas? Are the Christmas markets in Vienna better than the Christmas markets in the mentioned and other cities in Europe?
The difference between Vienna and the other cities
If you visit a city like Krakow before Christmas you will for sure be able to enjoy the fantastic Christmas market at the Main Market Square. As you visit Budapest you can go to the Vorosmarty square or in Prague you have the markets at the Wenceslas square and at the Old Town Square. In Vienna it is completely different. The city has some very famous and magnificent Christmas markets, but we dare to say the difference is as follows:
“In other cities you visit a Christmas market. In Vienna the entire city is a Christmas market.”
If you go for a walk in the city center of Vienna you will of course see the magnificent Christmas market in front of the City Hall. This is the most famous Christmas market in town. But, as you walk towards the St. Stephens Cathedral you will most likely meet several other markets as well. At some locations you will just see a stand where you can buy hot wine, while you at other locations will see lots of stands creating their very own little Christmas market. And yes, Vienna is packed with such markets and stands everywhere. And what makes it even better is that all stands are packed with people out there enjoying life and drinking some hot wine, especially during the weekends.
The fact that the streets are illuminated and that the Christmas markets all have special lights on during the evening makes everything even more fantastic. Again the Christmas market by the City Hall is the most beautiful of them all, but all the other markets are fantastic as well!
Vienna has some very special Christmas markets
As mentioned earlier Vienna is like a living Christmas market. You will find lots of smaller and bigger markets around, but you most not forget that Vienna has even more to offer. The so-called Christmas market by Spittelberg is one of the pearls you definitely have to experience. As someone who likes shopping you will of course visit the Mariahilferstrasse while in Vienna. Just by the metro stop Neubaugasse you will find a church and the Stiftgasse is located next to it. Enter into this street, pass by the parking house and you will soon understand that you are in Christmas wonderland. There are lots of streets next to one another packed with stands, small stores and it is one of the most amazing Christmas markets in Europe. And yes, it has an amazing atmosphere.
What are you waiting for? Jump on the plane and come to Vienna! The city has the most amazing Christmas markets, and the city in itself is like a giant Christmas market throughout December! If you haven’t seen it yet, hurry up! If you have been there once, you for sure understand what we are talking about!
