Advent programme for young and old

The diverse programme at the Schönbrunn Christmas and New Year’s Market provides seasonal cheer for adults and children alike.

Live concerts will be staged in front of the brightly lit Christmas tree. Local and international choirs, brass bands and music ensembles will take you on a melodic trip with Christmas classics and Austrian tunes, spirituals and gospel, swing and jazz. While adults are enjoying the music, children can have fun in the Children’s Hut or solve tricky puzzles and exciting tasks in the Interactive Game.
