Eistraum am Wiener Ring

The Christmas season is getting closer and slowly but surely we fall into the spell of this contemplative time. The scent of fresh Christmas biscuits and punch is in the air and the first Advent calendars already hang in the domestic children’s rooms. It is therefore no wonder that the Viennese Christmas market at the Rathausplatz opened its doors two weeks before the beginning of the Advent, and has inspired a Christmas village that is as diverse as ever.

Dear Christ Child …

In order to make sure that all Christmas wishes come true this year, the Rathausplatz has been a very special place: a writing workshop where small and big visitors have the opportunity to write their wishes down to the Christ Child. In addition, there is the possibility to decorate your own gingerbread and take it home with you. Simply heavenly …

Christmas is coming

The Viennese Christmas Market awaits its guests this year with a new, exceptional entrance portal. Already at the Vienna Ring you are greeted by a fairy-tale sea of lights along the park. In addition, there is a large, magnificent archway with Advent candles and countless many glittering Christmas tree balls. Who is not in the mood?

Romantic ice cream

A real highlight this year: You have the opportunity to slip into your ice skating shoes and dance over the ice at the Rathausplatz. Whether it is romantic for two or for the whole family – the ice rink has something to offer. This year with a little special: There is a place for curling, where young and old can duel and have a lot of fun.
A small tip to all those who want to train for the perfect skating: At the curling-ground you can always improve or refresh your skating skills at any time.

All in all, however, you can only say one thing about the Christmas market at the Rathausplatz: it is a magnificent paradise for those who love Christmas as much as we do.
