Photos and the City

Slow travel & photography

The first Christmas Market, called “Christkindlmarkt”, are opening this weekend. I went to visit the one on Spittelberg in the 7th district near Mariahilfer Straße and Volkstheater. The area is known for its charming Biedermeier lanes of Vienna‘s former suburb. As I´ve been there very early in the day, the market was unusual empty, it´s one of the busiest markets and buzzing with people usually. Have a hot punch in the picturesque courtyard of the Amerlingbeisl and you definitely have to try bohemian Kartoffelpuffer (potato pancakes)!
