Weihnachten in Wien

Zur Weihnachtszeit präsentiert sich Wien von seiner romantischsten Seite. In der Innenstadt überspannt ein Sternenhimmel aus prachtvollen Lichtergirlanden Kärntner Straße, Graben und Kohlmarkt. Vor der Kulisse prachtvoller Palais stehen traditionell geschmückte Buden und der süße Duft von Lebkuchen, Glühwein und Weihnachtsgebäck liegt allgegenwärtig in der Luft. Mit viel Liebe werden Auslagen mit Tannenreisig und bunten Seidenschleifen geschmückt und fantasievolle Weihnachtsbeleuchtung aus tausenden Lämpchen verwandelt ganz Wien in ein einziges vorweihnachtliches Lichtermeer.

Traditionell feiert man Weihnachten in Wien mit einem reich geschmückten Weihnachtsbaum und einem weihnachtlichen Festessen. Um Mitternacht geht man in die Kirche, um in der Christmette in einem lichtvollen Gottesdienst zu feiern. Von diesem Zeitpunkt an sind in vielen Kirchen Krippen aufgestellt, die in kleinen Figuren die Geburt Christi im Stall von Bethlehem darstellen.

Will man die weihnachtliche Zeit passend mit klassischer Musik in weihnachtlichem Rahmen verbringen, so finden sich eine Vielzahl von Weihnachtskonzerten- und Weihnachts-Packages, die man dazu geniessen kann. Aber buchen Sie schnell, denn diese Weihnachtsfeste sind oft auf Monate im Voraus ausgebucht.

Die Wiener Innenstadt wird zum Schauplatz eines gewaltigen Festivals. Vom Parlament aus startet ein Neujahrsfeuerwerk über der Stadt. Überall finden sich Showbühnen und Festzelte und am Stephansplatz wird ausgelassen gefeiert und getanzt.

Schlag 12:00 Mitternacht erklingt über der ganzen Stadt die Pummerin, die herrliche, alte sonore Glocke im Stephansdom. Nach einem Augenblick der Stille erklingen dann überall die Klänge von Johann Strauss An der schönen blauen Donau, denn in Wien tanzt man traditionell mit einem Walzer ins neue Jahr hinein.
