The Blumengärten Hirschstetten Christmas market is a charming escape from the hustling and bustling ones in the city center. It’s also one of the few that can be found on the other side of the Danube river. In amongst the gardens where flowers crowd the place in summer, little stands crowd the place, selling the typical wares, drinks and Christmas market snacks (there’s also an awesome cheese stand selling…well, hundred of different cheeses). It’s a trek to get out here if you’re traveling by public transport, but the trip adds to the feeling that you’re escaping the city.
Also good to know… there’s some kind of display set up with Christmas motifs arranged around the place – great for the kids! AND there’s live music on every open day from 5pm! Wow.
