    Christmas village campus University of Vienna

    From 11 November to 23 December 2022, the true Viennese Christmas is celebrated in the grounds of the old general hospital, now part of the university campus. Off the beaten track you can sip a glass of punch or mulled wine in a relaxed atmosphere, while children enjoy a ride on the carousel or the Christmas railway.
