Christmas village in the »Old AKH«

The Christmas village on the grounds of the former General Hospital (AKH) in Vienna is once again a meeting place for Viennese and guests. The Christmas market offers about 60 market stalls and a comprehensive program. The supporting program ranges from attractions for children to shows and music. There is also the Perchtenlauf at the Christmas market. The atmosphere is rather quaint and looks like a village with alpine huts.

Ice rink for athletes

Anyone at the Christmas Market in the »Alte AKH« (Literally »Old General Hospital«) not only offers numerous mulled wine stalls and punch and a lot of culinary art. At the Christmas market is also a separate area for curling or Ice stock sport. There you can also be a little sporty besides drinking mulled wine or punch.

Detailed children's program

The Christmas market in the old AKH is also known for the detailed children's program. Some fixed attractions such as a ferris wheel or a train, which can also be seen in the picture, are available for the children. But there is also a big program for the children with performances by Kasperl and other performances.
