in vienna this week - any tips?

Jump to last reply

Hello our family (mum/dad/two teens) has just settled in to our apartment for our Christmas week in Vienna. We don't have a lot of tourist visiting planned as are midway through a longer trip and see this week as a chance to have family time and enjoy a big Christmas city. We have bought a small Christmas tree and are making homemade decorations.

Having said that, we would like to see a few things. Today we grocery shopped then walked around the Resselpark market and the Naschtmarkt to suss out where to buy food for Christmas cooking and to get some lunch at the food stalls. Last night we wandered around a bit on Kamntner strasse. We are located right near the Opera - great location but things are quite expensive around here.

My husband got a last minute ticket to the Opera tonight and I will take the kids over to the Rathaus Christmas market. We may be able to get Symphony tickets tomorrow night or choose to take a chance on cancellation tickets for adults for the Othello opera. And I have booked tickets for my daughter and I to go to the Spanish riding school performance Sunday morning.

Are there other concerts/cultural events that people would know about and could recommend this week that teens might enjoy? I have an armload of brochures from the Tourist office and am a bit overwhelmed.

Also, do you think the kids would enjoy a tour of the Hofburg palace? We are finding it very cold so I am thinking this could be a better option than Schonburg? Any other must sees?
We have just been to Florence and done a lot of museums and churches so I would have to
limit those a bit in order to sell them to my kids.

Thanks for all your help. Thanks to those who gave advice about our apartment. I had a last minute availability come through at this location and we decided to take it.
