Christmas Markets – Highlighting Vienna

Christmas Markets in Vienna

Dates: November 27 – December 4, 2022

Trip Details

Many of our signature holiday traditions and customs — Christmas trees, gingerbread, nutcrackers, St. Nick and candy canes — come to us from Europe. We invite you to enjoy the holiday season as never before. Return to the days of yesteryear and take pleasure in a dusting of snowflakes, hot mulled wine, stirring carols and festive squares while exploring the treasures of Christmas markets in Vienna and the surrounding area.

Highlights of the tour will include fairytale Christmas markets, a practice session of the Lipizzaner horses at the Spanish Riding School, Schonbrunn Palace, and visits to Baden and Bratislava.

Hand-carved wooden ornaments and nativity scenes, festive wreaths, aromatic candles, lambskin shoes, luscious delicacies and hot spiced wine are all part of the magic of old-fashioned Christmas markets.

We will browse the wares of the ancient markets for culinary and cultural treasures while taking in the music, old-world traditions and historical sightseeing of the region.
