The tradition of the Christmas market dates back to medieval times and in Austria the Christmas market is very different you will find yourself sipping on Christmas punch which comes in a whole host of flavours, and each market has it own Christmas mug which you can either buy or return to get your deposit back.A must have snack is Kartoffelpuffer which is a heavy potato cake served with a variety of toppings , I had mine with sour cream and bacon.
Vienna Christmas World – Rathausplatz
This is the Christmas market I went to with my husband and we were so amazed at the set up of it all , one minute it isn't there and then magically it is all ready with overflowing Christmas magic.It is full of Christmas charm with over 150 wooden stalls, complete with lights dripping off tress the best ice rink I have ever seen.There is so mcc to see and buy and you will find some beautiful Christmas keepsakes and gifts for other people.
Belvedere Christmas MarketI was at the Belvedere on Saturday to see the art of Gustav Klimt and in particular the Kiss
While we were there they were setting up for the Christmas market and it looks like a very intimate Christmas market in a breathtaking setting , it is a perfect place for a stroll day or night.This is a Christmas market with a Baroque flavour it is smaller and more intimate as previously mentioned.You could buy yourself a handmade Christmas decoration here and enjoy the stately surroundings.

And I still do everything as I did before with the exception of working as a teaching assistant.I now volunteer at a school hearing children read and now I’m helping them with their Children nativity. I’ve joined a choir and sing soprano well I try ! but I’m getting my voice back to where it was.
The temperature outside has been dropping consistently for the last couple of months, and there’s a good chance it won’t heat up again for a little while now. On the plus side, the winter brings with it some amazing opportunities, including moments with beloved family members, meaningful days with friends, and the season of giving. On the other hand, winter is incredibly expensive, particularly when it comes to things like food and energy bills.
