This is another Christmas market which you can find along the Ringstrasse. The Maria-Theresien-Platz is situated across the ring from the Hofburg and sits between the Museum of Art History and the Museum of Nature History. Both are wonderful old buildings and it is worth visiting them as well when you check out the Christmas market.

As far as tourist attraction is concerned, this might be one of the most swamped markets. Most of the tourist buses which drop off the people at the Hofburg park right in front of it. This leads to swarms of people checking out the market and making it almost impossible to see the stalls or even get something to eat or drink. If its empty it’s worth checking out, but it’s not pretty or special enough to get squeezed, punched and shoved for it.
