Why is it a favourite?
Set within the narrow cobblestone lanes of the Spittelberg neighbourhood, and below its short, sweet houses, this market really does give us a furry, warm feeling inside. Christmas markets don’t get more charming than this. The craft stands are mostly occupied by local artisans here, which is a fresh change to the made-in-China craft found at many Christmas markets around Vienna. You’ll, of course, find that here, too, but less of it.
Be sure to try: The delicious garlicky and salty Erdapfelpuffer (potato pancakes), with extra garlic. The stand can be found on Spittelberggasse in the courtyard filled with Christmas stands and it’s legendary!
