The year 2014 has been an exciting one for Apartment Hotels Europe and it has gone by really fast. It’s almost Christmas time and our employees from our Vienna office want to present to you the famous Christmas markets in Vienna, which convert Vienna into a very romantic city during the Christmas time. Visitors in our apartment hotels in Vienna will love the cosy atmosphere on Vienna’s christmas markets.
Christmas markets in Vienna
One may say December is not the right time to visit Austria’s capital, as Vienna is known to be very cold during winter. Still, Apartment Hotels Europe highly recommends to plan a stay in our apartment hotels in Vienna before Christmas. It may be true that it can be freezing outside and that it might rain or snow in Austria during this time. However, the Christmas markets in Vienna and the Punch and Glühwine, which is offered on this markets, make the cold bearable. It’s a tradition to drink punch and glühwine during the cold winter months in the German speaking countries. Apartment Hotels Europe picked three different Christmas markets, which are highly recommendable to the guests of our featured apartment hotels in Vienna:
Christmas market right in front of the townhall
The Christmas market right in front of the townhall of Vienna is probably the most famous and biggest one. It is located in close vicinity to our apartment hotels in Vienna. Not only a lot of punch and glühwine is provided on numerous little stands, but a lot of these stands sell little gadgets and souvenirs you can bring home. From the 15th of November till December 24th the Christmas market is open from 10a.m. to 9:30 p.m on Sundays till Thursdays and from 10a.m. till 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. It is easily accessible via Metroline U2. For further infos, click here.
Christmas market in front of the Charles church
The Christmas market in front of the Charles church can be connected with sightseeing. The Charles church itself is a very majestic one and builds a great scenery for this Christmas market. Guests in our apartment hotels in Vienna can check out little stands offering local handcrafts of different types and, of course, hot punch and glühwine. Live Music and artistic shows make this Christmas market a very lively one. It is accessible via Metroline U1, U2 and U4. The Christmas market is open from November 21st till December 23rd from 12am till 8pm. Click here for more information.
Christmas market on the Spittelberg
The Christmas market on the “Spittelberg” is one of the most idyllic ones. You can easily reach this christmas market from our apartment hotels in Vienna. Stands offer punch and gluhwine, but also lots of local pieces of art and handcraft are sold on this christmas market. Even though the christmas market is very close to the city center, it seems isolated from the hectic city center and the Mariahilfer Straße, where many people finish their christmas shopping. The christmas market is located close by the metro stop “Volkstheater” (metro lines U2 and U3). Click here for more information.
