A twist on the Christmas market

Medieval Advent Market

Last weekend in November 2020

The Medieval Advent Market on the open space in front of the Museum of Military History in Vienna presents medieval handicraft and food booths, jugglers, fencers, dancers, fire-eaters and minstrels.

Every day there is matching live music and in the evening a fire show, a children's program with story time, crafting, St. Nicholas and Krampus run (November 29), Kasperl puppet show (November 30) and much more besides. And when it finally gets too cold outside, then you should head to the exhibition in the museum – admission is free on Sunday!
