The unique backdrop gives this market a charm of its own, and the delicious aromas are sure to lull all visitors into the seasonal joy. We will later explore the baroque lifestyle and traditional handicrafts at the popular Christmas Village at Belvedere Palace (entrance to the Palace is extra). Set against the glorious baroque residence, the palace is one of Vienna‘s most beautiful and significant sights. More than 40 Christmassy decorated market stalls offer traditional handcrafted goods, elaborate Christmas decorations and special culinary delights.

We will also find the Christmas markets here, made up of more than 100 stands offering local handmade wood crafts, glass and leather goods. We will also be able to taste various delicacies such as sausages, soups, pancakes, biscuits and much more!
