I know I’ve said this many times, but nobody does Christmas like the Austrians. Nobody.
Almost every European city has a Christmas market of some sort, but Vienna (of course) claims to have started it all with a massive December market in 1294.
I decided to walk my way through Advent season by visiting 25 of Vienna’s more than 40 annual Christmas markets, pop-ups, and bazaars. (Matt was a good sport for about a half dozen!) To do so, I traveled to some of Vienna’s farthest corners and visited many of the city’s lesser known parks and landmarks.
So, without further ado, grab a cup of glühwein (mulled wine) and take a look at Sandy’s Advent Calendar of Advent Markets.
