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 art and design market "Lights" in the WUK has also been held for several years now. Small labels and young designers sell their handmade works here. Sofas and candlelight provide a living-room atmosphere, and there's also an entertainment program with DJs and live music.
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.
Not exactly a Christmas market, but nevertheless ideal when it comes to looking for gifts, is the Feschmarkt in the Ottakringer Brewery in mid-November. Two hundred young designers and labels present original and unusual fashion, jewelry, accessories, graphics, art and product design. Here as well, DJs provide the right setting, accompanied by food and drink.
