17, December 2014: Travel industry experts are touting Vienna as an excellent destination for Christmas travellers, with the city’s Christmas markets a major highlight. Locals and visitors alike can get their hands on many one-of-a-kind and seasonal products at these excellent festive markets held all over the city.

Those arriving in the city via convenient transfers from top shuttle companies like Shuttle Direct, will find not one, but a huge number of Christmas shopping options unique to Vienna.

Representatives from shuttle transfer company Shuttle Direct advise first time visitors who have no idea where to start to zero in on the Rathausplatz, where the famous city square’s traditional Vienna Magic of Advent will in full swing. The square is transformed into a bustling gathering of more than a hundred stalls offering Christmas gifts, decorations, even sweets and warming drinks. It is also a perfect destination for those travelling with the family as there are many stands specialising in gifts for children. The surrounding City Hall Park’s trees are festively decorated with twinkling lights — also sure to delight younger visitors.

As the Christmas markets take place in all the city squares, it means that going from one square to another is often just a short stroll or a leisurely drive. Not far from Rathausplatz is the Christmas village on Maria-Theresien-Platz, nestled between the Museum of Fine Arts and the Natural History Museum. For a romantic setting, there is the Christmas village in the Old AKH, and the markets set up at the Belvedere Palace and the Schonbrunn Palace provide a shopping experience tinged with imperial ambience.
