As expected the crowds get bigger at nights with the bus loads of tourist being brought into the markets. Lots of crafts and plenty of good food. Personally, I enjoyed it during the day when the crowds were not so large. Concentrated better for shopping!

The Christmas market was in full swing when we visited and it really was busy but a great atmosphere and everyone friendly. We had an authentic meal in one of the market restaurants as well as enjoying a roasted bratwurst on another visit. Great place...More

Lovely market even though it cost a euro to get in - real crafts made by real craftsmen. Easy walk from Alexplatz too, and very civilised.
