I once read that if you are going to Vienna for Christmas, and you only have time for one Christmas market, then you better visit the Christmas Market at Spittelberg. I am not sure if I completely agree or not, but the market at Spittelberg is for sure located among the top 3 Christmas Markets in Vienna.
The special thing about the Christmas Market at Spittelberg is that it is not like any of the other markets. This is not located at one big square, but it is made up of lots of small shops in small streets in the area between the Volkstheater and the Mariahilferstrasse. Due to this, it has a great atmosphere and it is a thrill to check this one out after some time in Schönbrunn or at the Rathauzplats Christmas Market.
At this market you can find mostly the same products as elsewhere, but besides the normal products you can also find bioshops selling “adventtee”, meaning a box of 24 filters, one for every day in December.
We truly loved this Christmas Market, and we will for sure recommend everyone in Vienna to check out this pearl not far from the inner centre of Vienna.
How to get there?
Take the metro (U3) to either Volkstheater or Neubaugasse, and walk a bit, or take tram 49 to Stiftgasse.
