November 2018: 25 years! Schönbrunn Christmas Market is a quarter of a century old
For the 25th time, the Schönbrunn Christmas Market will transform the area in front of the magnificent summer residence of the Habsburgs into a glittering Christmas world.
On 24 November the Schönbrunn Christmas Market will open its doors and invite visitors to a glittering festive celebration. Gabriela Schmidle (MTS Wien CEO) recalls the very first Schönbrunn Christmas Market: “We were all wondering how many visitors would come to see the lighting of the first Christmas tree, a spruce from Peter Rosegger’s native forest. There were lots of people! Every year since then, a million visitors from Austria and other countries have come to enjoy the unique atmosphere and imperial setting of the Schönbrunn Christmas Market, which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary.”
