Map of the Vienna Christmas Market

The first Christmas markets were held in Vienna more than seven centuries ago. In 1296, Emperor Albrecht I granted Viennese traders and shopkeepers the chance of holding a December Market for the citizens. In the 16th century the Thomasmarket was held around Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Besides the standard goods such as textiles and groceries, gringerbreads and pastries was also sold.
The market settled at its current location on the City Hall Square in 1975. The annual Magic of Advent in Vienna, as the event is now known, attracts more and more visitors each year.
Over the centuries the Vienna Christmas markets have been much more than a place to stock up on supplies, also a meeting place and bringing together people from all around the world.
