Christmas Market in Vienna
One of the things I love the most in Vienna is the Christmas Markets. Although Christmas in Vienna is way more different than Christmas in Caracas, the magic that this city has to offer in this time of the year is just magical.
An interesting fact about the Christmas Markets in Vienna is that dates back to 1298, even do the famous ones are in Germany, Austria has a long tradition with the Christmas markets. They start from the middle of November until the end of December. But the most romantic ones you can found in Salzburg, nevertheless all Christmas markets around Europe are special, so if you are here in Europe you have to stop by.
I am so lucky to call Vienna my hometown now, and for the record, Vienna has around 25 different Christmas markets, that is easy to get lost in each and one of them.
Today I went to the Karlsplatz Christmas Market to show you how beautiful this one is, although is not the only one nevertheless the magic never ends.
For starters, almost in every corner, you can find typical Austrian delicates, like the famous Christmas punch, or the amazing Christmas cookies, or even Latin American food. Last year my friend Daniela from Sazon Food was in the Spielberg Christmas Market, with arepas, hallacas and Churros.
