The Viennesse inner city is engarlanded with impressive little lights. In front
of impressive old palaces stand traditionally decorated little booths, the sweet
aroma of gingerbread, mulled wine and Christmas cakes is in the air. Shop
windows are decorated with pine twigs, fir loppings and colorful silk ribbons.
Fantastic Christmas decorations made of thousand of small lights turn Vienna
into a christmas-like sea of lights.
At the City Hall Square, Vienna's biggest
christmas market offers traditional and modern Christmas treats. Vienna
Christmas market is Viennese tradition as it's over 700 years old. Finding

Viennesse Advent magic turns the close by park in a pavilions adorned with
Christmas decorations, the trees full of golden leafs, glowing hearts, huge
candies and glittering stars. At Christmas workshops children can bake sweet
cookies or biscuits and tinker gifts.
