VIENNA, August 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Where stars twinkle and children's dreams come true
It all starts on 15 November: when the days become shorter and the temperatures drop, the Vienna Magic of Advent opens its gates. Vienna's much-loved Christmas market shines in its full glory, and the smell of sugar-roasted almonds, chestnuts and gingerbread entices visitors to linger. The market represents a delightful way to combine Christmas shopping with a wide-ranging programme of events: international advent caroling and the well-known brass ensemble create that magic in the air, as do the well-known faces reading stories on the celestial stage.
Younger visitors can get involved in the baking and art and craft activities in "Christkindl's workshop" to help the "Christkindl" prepare for Christmas. And with a little luck, the Viennese "Christkindl" itself will make an appearance.
A stroll through the park with the imaginatively decorated trees not only brings a moment of calm away from the goings-on at the market, but also magical discoveries. Pony rides, the nostalgic merry-go-round, or the Christkindl Express are a focus for the smaller visitors to the park. For those looking for a little peace and quiet, a walk in the park is perfect. And for those looking for a little extra guidance, the Magic of Advent App provides the perfect solution.
The traditional Christkindlmarkt in Vienna offers something for every mood and turns the pre-Christmas period into something special. Gifts large and small can be purchased up to the last minute. And for the occasional break, a wide ensemble of delicacies await the hungry visitors.
The brochure accompanying the Vienna Magic of Advent is free from branches of Österreich Werbung or from the Vienna Tourist Board on: +43-1-24555, fax: +43-1-24555-666.
