Christmas markets with design
Apart from the numerous Christmas markets offering classic handicrafts, Vienna also has a few markets where designers offer original and individual creations for sale. One of these design Christmas markets is held in the MuseumsQuartier at the end of November. In the WeihnachtsQuartier, selected designers show diverse and creative ideas for all areas of life on an area of around 1,000 square meters - from furnishing accessories made from glass and ceramic, to fashion and jewelry.
The Mondscheinbazar (Moonlight Bazaar) is Vienna’s most popular night flea market. In the Ottakringer Brewery, nearly 120 exhibitors provide plenty of surprises with wonderful and beautiful objects from the areas of vintage, design, art and curiosities. The next day, the fun continues with early shopping. Food trucks, music and great drinks round out the event.
On two weekends in Advent, the Kunst & Kram Christmas Market invites visitors to the Bunkerei/Punscherei in the Augarten. It’s the place to come and rummage for gifts amongst artistic, practical and edible things. The market offers contemporary handicrafts, textiles and young fashion labels, culinary products, and reading and music material. Chestnuts, punch and bonfires create an Advent ambience.
The Ochs & Esel (Ox & Donkey) Winter Market is held in the former horse stables at the trotting track Krieau. There is plenty of space here for a unique mixture of cool design items, fashionable labels, street food, readings, performances and lots of music. Visit the various stalls on a journey of discovery through the Vienna designer scene.
The design market Oh Edelstoff in the Marx Hall also provides a pre-Christmas shopping kick. Lovingly hand-crafted fashion, accessories, jewelry, kids design and art from 140 designers from Austria and neighboring countries await the visitors. As well as a big area with street food.
