Christmas markets in Austria

Think of Advent Markets, and many people will think of Germany. However, Christmas markets are a well-established and a typically Austrian tradition. From around mid-November until the end of December, Christmas markets can be found in every major city and town in Austria.

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. 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.

If you’re not sure what market or city to visit, take a look at the Austrian Christmas markets on our site for full information including locations and maps, opening times and hours and reviews on the most popular markets.
