A Christmas market set in the Middle Ages
The Heeresgeschichtliches Museum Wien (Military Museum) is playing host to one of the coolest Christmas markets happening in Vienna. A 4-day medieval-themed Christmas market stands far apart from the other markets in this list. There are little stalls selling metalwork and woodwork creations made by the stand owners (who tend to really take the Medieval thing seriously, dressing up like they’ve just landed in 2019 from that era), while there are all kinds of live music, jugglers and jesters, market criers, fencing duals and other shows to entertain the crowds. Then there’s the food inspired from Medieval times being prepared and served up. Another distinguishing factor is the delicious winter Punsch, Glühwein (mulled wine) and other hot drinks to warm you up, that are made fresh by the stand owners, as opposed to being mass produced like the Punsch at many of the other markets.
Recommended if you like: events when you get to take your sword to, wearing a Knights costume or a lot of leather, Punsch and Glühwein, very unique experiences
