UTL: Winter wonderland creates anticipation for Christmas for the 30th time
When the days become shorter, there is every reason to be happy: on 14 November, The Vienna Magic of Advent opens its gates on the Rathausplatz - this year, incidentally, for an impressive 30th time. As a winter wonderland, it brings anticipation for Christmas and invites visitors to linger a while in cosy surroundings. Angel wings and decorated trees, the aroma of roast almonds and chestnuts as well as a varied children's programme makes the "Christkindl" market the most child friendly Christmas market in Europe. The popular choirs from around the world and the Turmbläser, musicians who play festive music with horns from tower tops, provide a pre-Christmas flair.

There are some surprises waiting for both small and grown-up visitors in the lovingly decoratedRathauspark: the colourfully designed trees make the evening mood particularly atmospheric. For small guests, there is something very special to discover: pony riding, the nostalgic merry-go-round and the "Christkindl Express" are a must for every true Christkindl market tour.
But it's not just the lights on the Christkindl market and on the colourfully decorated tree in theRathauspark that shine. The eyes of all the children take on a very special brightness when they suddenly discover the Vienna Christkindl, wander through the park, or help their eager assistants in the "Christkindl Workshop", where there is baking and handicrafts galore.
Moreover, the popular Viennese Christkindl market offers the chance to buy Christmas presents right up until the last minute. For the short break now and then a varied selection of delicious treats awaits hungry visitors. The "Celestial Stage" decorated with angel wings in the centre of the market is always a highlight, which has become a popular spot for all fans of selfies. From Monday to Thursday celebrities recount stories, poems and anecdotes here, adding to the pre-Christmas atmosphere.
The brochure accompanying the Vienna Magic of Advent is available for free at branches of Österreich Werbung or at WienTourismus under the service number: +43-1-24 555, Fax: +43-1-24 555-666.
