What I would you really recommend is to visit Vienna during Christmas time. Reserve for your selfe two or three days and spend a beautiful holiday in a marvelous capital of Austria.
Usually the christmas time start in the end of November. You can see how dramatically the city changes during that time. It is really nice to see the street decorations, everything is flashing and glittering….
The best thing which I really like are traditional Christmas markets which are very famous. If like punch or mulled wine than you will be there on the right place. Very nice idea is that on every Christmas market you can buy a punch or mulled wine in a cup which is always specially designed for that. You can buy and keep the cup and make a christmas cups collection 🙂
The most famous markets can you find on Rathausplatz, Karlsplatz, on MuseumQuartier and of course in Schoenbrunn which is very traditional.
