Vienna from £232 pp
As the thermometer plunges in Vienna and the star speckled nights sky draws in, the crisp winter’s air is the warming reminder that Christmas is just around the corner.
The heady scent of treats and mulled wine fills Austria’s capital come mid-November, when Vienna plays host to Christkindlmarkt, Christmas markets full of nostalgia, charm and romance. During Advent traditional wooden market stalls spring up all over the city. Notably Spittelberg, City Hall and St. Charles Borromeo are a must with neighbouring Rathauspark’s festivities bringing out your inner child with fairytale scenes, animals and the Christkindl Express.
