Winter weekend in Vienna


©Viennissima Lifestyle

Pretty Vienna is always worth a trip - especially in the winter time! Rarely is the city as beautifully decorated as at this time of year. Everything sparkles and glitters thanks to the atmospheric Christmas lighting, the Advent markets and the magnificent shop windows. The facades of many hotels and imperial buildings are decorated with fairy lights, and colorful lanterns hang in the trees around the Christmas markets.  

Domestic fir trees are offered for sale in many places and the Viennese coffee houses invite for coffee and cake after a walk through the city center. A wintry weekend in Vienna is therefore always a "gourmet journey" through Viennese coffee houses and concept stores on the search of a suitable souvenir. Many cafés, bars and boutiques offer experiences beyond the Christmas markets or touristic classics. That way you can fully enjoy the Christmas or winter atmosphere.
