To all the music lovers out there: Christmas and New Year’s Eve are right around the corner! What does that mean?

Attending events like these are really extraordinary and unique moments in life that will guarantee you memories which you‘ll never forget. And all this in the wonderful & magical winter flair of Vienna!


The annual Advent atmosphere in the weeks before Christmas has its own special magic. When the first snowflakes fall, the scent of Christmas cookies & cinnamon is in the air and you gather with your friends & family at the famous Viennese Christmas markets to enjoy a punch or hot wine... that is when you notice it is that special time of the year again.


Especially around the Christmas season, Vienna is always a very popular tourist destination with the city turning into a bit of a "Winter Wonderland" with all its Christmas markets, lights and wonderful decorations throughout the town centre. We offer you a professional concierge service, perfectly tailored to your needs. 


With all the countless possibilities that Vienna has to offer at this special time of year, we have summarized a few of the top highlights of the Advent and Christmas season in Vienna for you:

Vienna State Opera

The Vienna State Opera enchants throughout the entire year with its magnificent programme, and also especially around Christmas time with extraordinary performances that perfectly fit the season:

-       “The Nutcracker", Rudolf Nureyev

-       “The Magic Flute“, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

-       "The Bat", Johann Strauss

Opera tickets are generally highly sought-after and sold out, especially at that special time of the year. We would like to make your Vienna trip even more unique and provide you with your tickets for the top concert highlights at the turn of the year – just sit back and relax and prepare for a wonderful evening!


Shhhhhhh... a little tip regarding the dress code:

Elegant evening wear matched to the elegant opera setting is welcomed: black tie and a knee-length or long evening dress is definitely no mistake!


Personal tip: Visit the world-famous Café/ Hotel Sacher located behind the opera and treat yourself to a classic Viennese mélange together with a slice of the unique Sacher-Torte. Trying the most famous cake in the world is a must on your To-Do list and it will truly make you taste a “piece of Vienna“.

                                  We will be more than happy to book a table for you!

New Year’s Eve Concert at the Musikverein

The famous Musikverein in Vienna delights its audience on New Year’s Eve with a special concert of the Vienna Philharmonic. The Vienna Philharmonic was founded in 1842 and is one of the most renowned orchestras in the entire world. The conductor Christian Thielemann will take you to a different musical world in the Great Hall of the Musikverein, and thus let 2018 end magnificently in order to start off 2019 perfectly. The varied programme from the vast repertoire of the Strauss family dynasty will provide concert visitors with an unforgettable experience of unparalleled quality. 

Personal tip: Before your unique evening at the Musikverein begins, why don’t you pay a visit to the classic Café Imperial which is situated at Vienna‘s traditional Ringstrasse. Viennese delicacies paired with the location‘s historical ambience will inspire you – moreover, the customer is truly “king“ here. We will be more than happy to book a table for you!


Private transfers to Salzburg, Budapest etc.& private tours with guides

For perfect trips to other beautiful cities close to Vienna, such as Salzburg or Budapest, there is the option of private transfers that we can easily organise for you, so that you can explore not only Vienna, but also other cities during your trip here! On top of that, we can also arrange private tours through the entire city of Vienna with your own personal guide, which is a service that is available in all languages.


Viennese Christmas markets

An absolute MUST on your X-Mas to-do list is definitely a visit to one of the numerous Christmas markets in Vienna during advent season.
The cozy, magically romantic touch of the Viennese Christmas markets begins in mid-November and lasts until Christmas or even New Year's Eve. Every year, these markets delight tourists from all over the world as well as locals with their small wooden huts, traditional handicrafts, Christmas music, colourful lights, sparkling decorations and of course local delicacies. There are countless things to discover, with the scent of Christmas baking like the classic Austrian Vanillekipferl (small vanilla croissants) and hot punch adding to the wonderful feeling of the pre-Christmas atmosphere.

 The larger Christmas markets in the city centre are usually taken over by tourists and are therefore heavily frequented, whereas the smaller markets are mainly visited by locals & insiders and are a bit more cozy. You can get a look at both the big ones (e.g. at Rathausplatz) and small ones in order to compare prices and products before you start off with your ideal Christmas shopping.

Personal tip: Before you start your Christmas markets-tour, go ahead and treat yourself to culinary delights in a classic Viennese establishment - the Plachutta. This restaurant can not be surpassed in tradition as well as Austrian specialties. The world-famous Wiener Tafelspitz (Viennese boiled beef) will definitely be among the most delicious dishes you have ever tried. We will be more than happy to book a table for you!
