Christmas markets in Austria

The Festive season in Austria

In Austria, the Advent period has a very special meaning.

Think of Advent Markets, and many people will think of Germany. However, Christmas markets are a well-established and a typically Austrian tradition. The ‘December Market’ in Vienna, the capital of Austria, dates back to 1298 and is regarded by some as the forerunner to the Christmas Market. Vienna now hosts around 25 markets.

From around mid-November until the end of December, Christmas markets can be found in every major city and town in Austria.

Graz, Austria’s second city, offers about 14 markets. Innsbruck’s markets enjoy a Tyrolean mountain backdrop whilst Salzburg, a city acclaimed for its culture and music, offers some of the most romantic Christmas markets in Austria. Don’t just restrict yourself to the major cities – many alpine towns and villages, such as Kitzbuhel, Hall-in-Tirol and Linz, will host markets, which although not that large, ooze character and atmosphere.

We have a choice of Christmas market coach tours available, taking in the Austrian Lake District and cities such as Linz, Innsbruck, Salzburg and Vienna, along with seasonal breaks by air and rail and fabulous hotel offers. We also offer a selection of ‘things to do’ and places to shop or eat on most of the market pages to make your visit or short break to a market more memorable.

If you’re not sure what market to visit, take a look at the Austrian Christmas markets on our site for full information and reviews on the most popular markets.

Please note the information and dates on the markets are subject to change.
