Vienna Christmas Dream

From November 12th to December 26th 2021, the Vienna Town Hall Square will be transformed for over 30 years every year in a unique Viennese Christmas dream! This year, however, under very special conditions and safety measures.

Due to the lockdown, the Vienna Christmas markets will be closed
from November 22nd to December 12th, 2021!

Magic of advent in a dreamlike setting

Every year again! As soon as the temperatures drop and the days get shorter, longs to be back to hot punch, cotton candy, flickering lights and Christmas decorations. The Christmas Market (Christkindlmarket) in front of the Vienna Town Hall is one of the fixed highlights before Christmas for tourists, as well as for visitors from Vienna and Vienna surroundings. Delicious warming punch, gingerbread, candied fruit, roasted almonds and many other Christmas delicacies enchant the visitors. And for those who are still looking for a Christmas present, there are many wonderful, some unusual and also crafted products of about 125 stalls to buy.

All of this can be found in the fantastically romantic setting between the Viennese Town Hall and the Burgtheater. The facade of the Viennese town hall, inspired by the tradition of Flemish Gothic town halls, turns every year in Advent into an oversized, enchantingly lit Advent calendar, where every day a whole window is revealed instead of a door.

In the middle of the market, a huge and brightly lit Christmas tree enthrones every year and let children’s eyes ashine and makes young-hearted hearts beat faster. The tree is a gift from one of Austria’s federal states, this year the spruce comes from Burgenland. He will be as always admire to January 6 at the Town Hall Square.

In order to offer visitors to the Viennese Christmas Dream more space of movement, the ice surface of the “small ice dream” in the left half of the park will not be built this year. The “2-G rule” applies to all Viennese markets (access only for those who have been vaccinated or those who have recovered)
