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 designer Christmas markets will be held at the end of November/beginning of December in the MuseumsQuartier (MQ). In the WeihnachtsQuartier, around 100 selected labels and designers show diverse and creative ideas for all areas of life – from furnishing accessories made from glass and ceramics, to art, fashion and jewelry.

The X-Mas edition of the "Edelstoff" design market in the Marx Hall also provides a pre-Christmas shopping kick away from the mainstream. Lovingly hand-crafted fashion, accessories, jewelry, kids design and art from 150 designers from Austria and neighboring countries await the visitors. As well as a big area with street food.

The VinziRast Advent Market is a special Christmas market: All products sold here have been hand-made by refugees under the auspices of the charitable project VinziChance. Fabric bags and rucksacks, aprons, decorative small boxes, wooden toys, Christmas decorations, Advent decorations and much more besides are offered here.

At the Weihnachtstankstelle (Christmas filling station), 19 designers come together to sell high-quality handicrafts such as a ceramics, jewelry, textiles, wood, honey, soaps and much more besides.

On the forecourt of the MuseumsQuartier, the WinterWAMP design market opened for some relaxed Christmas shopping on November 8. Without Christmas kitsch, but with a special love for detail and directly from the manufactories of the labels, you can find truly unique gifts here. The designers change weekly.

Throughout Advent, the forecourt of the Ottakringer Brewery transforms into the Stadtklang Christmas market every weekend. Visitors can find original and thoughtful gift ideas here with a love for detail - whether paintings, photographs, design, handicrafts, accessories or fine foods. Previews, live music and a children's program provide additional entertainment at this Christmas market.
