Christmas season in Austria

The time from late November to the end of the year hold a very special meaning in Austria. Visit Austria's Christmas markets, try some Glühwein and enjoy the spirit of Christmas. In fact Christmas markets are a long-standing and typically Austrian tradition. In Vienna for instance, the market is held in the large square in front of City Hall, which can be tracked back to the year 1298. Innsbruck opens its romantic Christmas markets in the narrow medieval square at the foot of the Golden Roof. Whereas Salzburg's Christmas market takes over the square in front of the Cathedral with its picturesque stalls. However almost every small village in Austria has its own Christmas market.
