Today, on my first day in Vienna for this trip, I stopped by the large Christmas Market in front of the Rathaus. I was actually cold, tired, and wanted to get back to my hotel room, but when I saw the activity in front of the Rathaus, I had to get off the tram and walk around. I’m glad I did.
Dozens and dozens of little shops cover the square in front of the Rathaus. Many are selling Christmas decorations and gifts, and others have a great variety of tempting food. You can eat, drink, shop, or just look at the lights. I will definitely return here in the next few days. Here are some pictures.
