Time is flying by so fast and it is starting to be this time of year again!
I especially love the Christmas decorations in the first district with their light decorations and the festive looking shop windows.
A small Christkindlmarkt is located at Michaelerplatz and you can even catch a glimpse of the Roman excavation at the bottom.
At Demels (founded in 1786) they even decorated for St. Nicholas Day. As a small kid I would have received traditional gifts like: peanuts, mandarins and chocolate but I am too old for that already ;)
In Austria St. Nicholas is accompanied by Krampus, a scary-looking and demonic like creature that is in charge of the naughty kids. A great tale to scare kids but we also have the Krampus night on the 5th of December, which can be a bit scary for adults as well. Check out Krampus or Krampuslauf on Youtube to get a general impression.
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without delicious Vanillekipferl. They are definitely my favourite Christmas cookies!
What is your favourite Christmas indulgence?
Of course there is also a little Christkindlmarkt at Stephansplatz. Great for tourists who are sight seeing in Vienna and need to warm up with punch or Glühwein :)
And last but not least that pretty little bow. I probably take pictures of it every year but it is just too cute!
