Team Santa Claus and the imperial Christmas grouches

An entertaining Advent walk through Vienna

Not yet in the Christmas mood?

Then join us on our 1.5-hour walks through atmospheric Vienna on Advent weekends.

We follow in the footsteps of St. Nicholas and find out when the Christ Child began to play a decisive role as the bearer of gifts. At the Hofburg castle, famous Habsburg personalities turn out to be real Christmas grouches! From there we continue through the picturesque alleys of the 1st district. In an entertaining way we explore Christmas traditions like gingerbread, Christmas tree and nativity scene. Finally, the wonderful tradition of the Christmas market can be experienced with all senses at St. Stephen's Cathedral.
