What a wonderful surprise to find that the Christmas Markets in Vienna were NOT filled with "Made in China" designer knock offs!
This particular market was very close to our hotel, so it was the first I visited. The hot mulled wine was absolutely delicious…another surprise. I ate my 1st hot dog Vienna style and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. During the 12 days I was in Vienna, I visited this market often and tasted many of the chocolate and other delicacies…all wonderful.
There were many crafts for sale and most of very high quality and well priced. The vendors were polite and helpful when I asked them questions about the items they made and offered for sale.
There is a lot of live music in the evenings, and it creates a great Christmas mood.
If you are in Vienna for the Christmas holidays, the Christmas Markets are a "must do" and this is one of my favorites.

we had the good fortune of being in Vienna in December. At that time some of the big plazas become markets for Christmas. Some specialize in handmade crafts others in small gifts; but they all have hot wine and great food. There is something special about wandering through this market in particular when the Charles Church is all lit up and there are hundreds of people there any given evening.

Just look around the area and the Karlskirche with it's columns lets you know where you are. Enjoyed the Christmas market here. They had a small petting zoo for the children as well as some activities for them- candle making was one. Not too far from Naschmarkt and served by numerous trams and the Ubahn.

This place is full of life. I just loved to walk around at nights. Very good for shopping. Some very good restaurants in this area. I walked around this place every night during our stay in Vienna.

The square is lovely to visit during daytime, but it is STUNNING to visit after dark, when the Karlskirche is beautifully lit (do mind your belongings after dark, though, as pickpocketing is an issue there).
The square offers views of the Technical University, the Vienna museum, the Musikverein and, of course, the famous pavillions and Karlskirche.
