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 beginning of December in the MuseumsQuartier (MQ). 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 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.
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.
Christmas Wonder World is the name of an Advent market for pleasure, design and lifestyle at Wien Mitte - The Mall. A colorful selection of independent labels and small manufactories offers creative gift ideas.
This year's Winter Festival is being organized at Schloss Cobenzl with a wonderful view of Vienna. The palace park transforms into an Advent market devoid of clichés. Commercial art is offered and even made here. Punch, chestnuts and selected dishes provide refreshment. A wide-ranging program for young and old offers activities such as indoor mini golf, puppet theater, living room concerts and fireside readings.
The Creau Advent 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. At the world’s biggest walk-in Advent calendar, one door of 24 horseboxes - each one containing a surprise - opens every day from 1 to 24 December. In addition, a Christmas Market offers a voyage of discovery through the Vienna design scene.,
Ideal for Christmas gifts is rienna, a temporary shop on Michaelerplatz selling contemporary design from Vienna. A wide range of products ranging from fashion, accessories and jewelry through to interior objects, cosmetics and books can be found here, almost all of them made in Vienna. The shop shows the creative potential of the city and presents pretty souvenirs.
