This is worth putting on your short list of Christmas markets in Vienna. It is located on a series of street close to the museum district. There are more local crafts available and the overall setting is more intimate. There are also many local shops that you can explore as part of your journey in the market. I can recommend... More

Another of the Christmas markets we visited on our pre Christmas trip to Vienna. This one differed from most of the others in that it was less commercialised, selling more hand made goods and other items not seen elsewhere rather than mass produced items. It had the feel of a local neighbourhood market as it spread down several narrow streets... More

I would definitely suggest to visit the Spittelberg Christmas Market during your stay in Vienna. It was my favourite one with a real traditional market feeling and touch.

Really nice experience with lots of jolly people drinking and eating in the streets. Also a better selection of stalls. There were some that were still selling rather tacky products (as was typical of the markets in Vienna - we were surprised by that) but there were a few that had really interesting unusual products. Beware - shuts up fairly... More

We visited 5 or 6 markets while in Vienna and this was by far my favourite. A lot more traditional, spread out over 3 narrow streets with a bustling but never overly crowded feel. Loved it so much we went back again

Was marking one tour in Vienna to the Christmas markets. Spittelberg is one of the best that have seen, you real feel that it is Christmas and not that it is done just for impressing the customers and make them buy something. If you are in Vienna during Christmas time this is one of the markets that should be on... More

A small Christmas market set among three small lanes. We like this market more than the rest coz it is less touristy. More local products and more friendly vendors.

A different kind of market with very authentic stuff. The setting is different, a number of narrow streets. Pity there were a lot of people so it was very difficult to see and buy.

Visited this market because it is smaller and more authentic than others in Vienna. Quite expensive but nice to wander around little cobbled streets with a cup of hot punch.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
