Christmas Markets in Vienna

Christkindlmarkt Vienna © A Diem The unique Christmas markets (Christkindlmarkt, sometimes called Weihnachtsmarkt or Adventmarkt) are very popular in Vienna during the advent season. Most of these fairs are opening up mid-november and last till Christmas.
These romantic street markets enjoy a long tradition, with a history in Austria (as well as the rest of German speaking Europe) dating back to the Middle Ages.
The markets are mostly located in larger squares and pedestrian zones in Vienna and sell food, drinks and seasonal items from open-air stalls. Indulge yourself in Lebkuchen (gingerbread), gebrannte Mandeln (toasted almonds), Waffeln (waffles), Maroni (sweet chestnuts), Bratkartoffel (baked potatoes), Bratwurst (fried sausages) and - last but not least - hot Glühwein (mulled wine) and Punsch (glogg) of various kinds.
Definitely a must-see and a good source for Christmas presents!
