Austria travel diaries: Postcard from Vienna


Welcome to Vienna the capital of Austria.
I`ve already been to Vienna four times and I really like the beautiful city, so this time I didn`t visit the most famous tourist destinations, but my favorite places and Christmas markets.Wintertime in Vienna is a special experience. A stroll through the city is great way to browse for gifts. Particularly inviting are the Christmas markets, where there are all sorts of things waiting to be discovered – from culinary specialties to handicrafts.
From the middle of November, Vienna's prettiest squares transform into magical Christmas markets. People with a sense of tradition get their money's worth at the Viennese Christmas Market on Rathausplatz, at the Old Viennese Christmas Market on Freyung, or at the Christmas Market on Stephansplatz. Lovers of handicrafts should pay a visit to the Christmas markets on Karlsplatz or Spittelberg. The Christmas markets in front of Schönbrunn Palace and Belvedere Palace offer a uniquely imperial flair. The Winter Market on Riesenradplatz offers action.
 In addition to the aroma of punch, cookies, and toasted almonds, music also wafts through the air at Christmas time. The Christmas atmosphere in Vienna is replete with classic Advent concerts, festive church concerts, captivating Gospel evenings, and shows.

The capital of Austria is rich in history, culture & pristine beauty.

One of the highlights of Austria, Vienna has majestic monuments and palaces, elegant avenues, splendid museums and much more.Full of greenspace and historic and modern architecture, Vienna perfectly blends its rich history with equal focus on moving the city forward in innovation.
