Wonderful Advent time on the Viennese Christmas Dream - a peaceful, romantic, happy and unforgettable experience!

Where can the Christmas period be experienced more atmospherically than in the centre of Vienna. Before the dreamlike backdrop of the City Hall, the aroma of fine delicacies mixes with the voices and laughter of the people who, together with their loved ones, enjoy moments of joy and a hearty togetherness. The Viennese Christmas Dream - the magical winter fable makes advent into a unique experience!

To the people of Vienna and dear guests of the federal capital of Vienna!

Christkindlmarkt, ice skating rink and a magical Christmas world in the Rathauspark - that is the “Viennese Christmas Dream”. It is a pleasure for me to be able to greet you again here on the Rathausplatz during the pre-Christmas season. With the charity campaign “Children play for children” you have the opportunity of doing good. I wish you a peaceful and happy Christmas season and a wonderful time at the Viennese Christmas Dream!

Your Michael Häupl

Mayor and Governor of Vienna

Dear visitors!

During the weeks before Christmas the Rathausplatz in the heart of Vienna is transformed into a place for encounters.

With its unique atmosphere, its colourful, culinary and musical offerings the Viennese Christmas Dream today again attracts visitors from all over the world to ring in the time of togetherness. Vienna is the city of togetherness.

I wish all our visitors a happy and peaceful Christmas and an enjoyable time at the Viennese Christmas Dream.

With kind regards, Your Andreas Mailath-Pokorny
