The Christmas Market season starts on Saturday, 15th November 2009 in Vienna.
Advent, the four week period leading up to christmas, descends upon Vienna once more. During this time, Vienna is a city of nostalgia and romance. An important part is of course the traditional Christmas markets.
Classics include the Christmas market at Schönbrunn Palace, the Christmas market in front of City Hall, the traditional Viennese Christmas market on Freyung, the markets at Spittelberg, Am Hof and in front of the church of St. Charles (Karlskirche).
