Vienna Christmas Markets

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

Last Friday, I wrote a guest post for the wonderful Europe a la Carte blog about Vienna’s Christmas markets. In the article I listed a few of the markets. I haven’t seen them all yet – and the one at Spittelberg features high on my to-see list. It looks very cosy there in the narrow alleys.

Vienna is always elegant, but especially during advent. I adore the Christkindlmarkt in front of Rathausplatz (City Hall). It’s so colourful and lively. It’s also full of children, because City Hall hosts a fabulous children’s workshop, the Christkindl Werkstatt. With rosy cheeks, all flush with excitement, they run inside to make wonderful homemade Christmas pressies and to have heaps of fun.

Friday, January 26th, 2007
Trondheim is such a great city - if you can abide cold temperatures and biting wind, that is. I'm suggesting my daughter do the autumn terms here and winter terms elsewhere (like Australia), but so far, no luck. She actually ... [Continue reading this entry]
