Christmas in Vienna

Tree and Stephansdom
Vienna isn’t always this quiet…

Vienna is a magical place to be for Christmas – particularly if you are able to use the festive period to be able to also hit the ski slopes – with there being resorts open within very easy reach from Vienna. At the same time, if you are spending Christmas in Vienna for the first time, maybe away from family or on your own, the festive period can seem a very lonely time as Austrians celebrate in their families and a lot of the city shuts down on 24th and 25th December.

Check out our forum – where we’ll be providing information about what is on in case you find yourself alone over the Christmas period – why not connect with other members to arrange to do something, so that you don’t feel alone. This year might also seem quieter due to the fact that Christmas and New Year both fall upon weekends and as a result many locals are away for the period between Christmas and New Year.
