Most Christmas markets close as soon as presents are open in Austrian households, but which ones can you visit after Xmas time in Vienna?


One of the main attractions of the Austrian capital during the holiday season is Christmas markets. However, most of them usually close on or just after Christmas Day, leaving Viennese without their daily Glühwein dose for the remainder of the winter season.

While many, including the popular Weihnachtsdorf am Campus der Universität Wien will open for the last time this year on December 23rd, some are still open until December 26th and even beyond.

Here's where to get you punsch and maroni after the Christmas celebrations are done.
