Christmas Market Schönbrunn Palace

From November 19, 2022 to January 4, 2023, the former summer residence of the Habsburgs in Vienna will once again provide a magnificent setting for the traditional Schönbrunn Palace Culture & Christmas Market and New Year's Market. Around 80 exhibitors from Austria and neighboring countries offer high-quality and traditional handicrafts, unique Christmas decorations, nostalgic toys and selected regional delicacies on a spacious area. Culinary delights and delicacies from Vienna and the provinces will be served by the caterers. To warm up, a wide variety of punch creations or tea specialties are offered.

The gastronomic offer at the Christmas market will be enriched for the first time by grandmas and grandpas from the "Generationencafé Vollpension" with delicious Buchteln. Also new is "Punschsache.at" with regional and innovative hot drinks and traditional spiral potatoes or sweet potatoes.

OUR TIP: We recommend using the numerous PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION means for a relaxed journey to the Christmas market.


The wide range of activities on offer at Schönbrunn will ensure a festive atmosphere for adults and children alike. On the stage in front of the festively lit Christmas tree - traditionally a gift from Österreichische Bundesforste AG - selected choirs, wind ensembles and music groups get you in the mood for the upcoming festivities with free admission. While the adults enjoy live music, the children have fun at the adventure star house in the middle of the market or solve tricky riddles and exciting tasks with the shepherds on stilts at a join-in rally. In the Christmas workshop, even four-year-olds can model sweet marzipan snowmen or decorate gingerbread under expert guidance.

In front of the stage, a handmade nativity scene with over 250 figures attracts the attention of young and old. There is also plenty to discover at the Advent calendar in the middle of the market. From December 1 to 24, a new Christmas scene with works of art from the exhibitors will be unveiled every day.

The Children's Museum at Schönbrunn Palace shortens the waiting time for the Christ Child with themed tours, a winter puzzle rally, a handicraft workshop, a search game and much more. Further details at WWW.KINDERMUSEUMSCHOENBRUNN.AT.


This year, the Christmas Market will once again be extended and will be transformed overnight from December 26 to 27 into the New Year's Market at Schönbrunn Palace. Many hard-working hands will deliver New Year's greetings and add handmade lucky charms to the product assortment. In addition, Dixie, swing and jazz ensembles provide musical accompaniment into the New Year (daily at 4 p.m.).


Just a 45-minute drive from Schönbrunn, Schloss Hof Christmas Market, nestled in a magnificent art-historical setting, offers a very special experience on weekends from November 19 to December 18 with traditional arts and crafts and country flair. Arts and crafts, culinary delights, concerts, a colorful children's program and an impressive baroque backdrop guarantee an unforgettable experience for the whole family.
