From manor house to hunting lodge to eventually the imperial summer residence of the Habsburg monarchs, Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria hosts a most remarkable Christmas Market. This 1,441-room Baroque palace boasts extensive grounds with an incredible Park and Gardens. The park, open to the public since 1779, was placed, along with the palace, on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1996.

The upcoming 24th annual “Weihnachtsmarkt” runs from November 18th through December 26th of this year (converting to New Year’s Market after this date through January 1st, 2018) The forecourt of the Palace will feature around 60 to 75 vendors/exhibitors.

We visited this spectacular Christmas Market in 2014 and it was definitely a market highlight. The aroma of fresh baked goods and Christmas punch (Weihnachtspunsch) filled the air. Lebkuchen and roast chestnuts were readily available to savor. High quality wares from the workshops of artisans showcasing candles, pottery, woodwork and much more made for great gifts.

The beautifully decorated Christmas tree is always a centerpiece and we loved watching all the folks taking pictures for keepsake memories of a grand and wonderful event.
