    The best time of the year in Vienna

    The atmosphere of the Christmas markets in Vienna is difficult to top. When you are about to decide where to go for Christmas shopping, mulled wine and listen to the Christmas carols, Vienna is one of the best places you can choose from. You won’t be disappointed, that is certain.


    The months of April through May and September through October are considered to be the ideal times to visit Vienna. In the spring and fall, when the temperature is not that hot or not that cold anymore, there are less tourists in the city. The majority of tourists come to Vienna in the summertime to take advantage of the city’s famously balmy and sunny climate, which we do understand.

    You should plan on the city being quite crowded at this time of year. If you don’t like the warm weather and you would like to experience the real Viennese Christmas spirit, then December is the perfect time for your vacation!


    Our experience in Vienna has led us to believe that the ideal length of time to spend there is three days. You will be able to see the majority of the main sights in this beautiful city that you are interested in, as well as add in a few of the less well-known attractions, without feeling too rushed if you plan your trip during the Christmas period.

    HeyMi Apartments are the ideal accommodations for these short getaways, but also for longer vacations they are the most suitable one you can find within Vienna.


    Dressing warmly is the most crucial thing you can do in order to get the most out of the winter wonderland that surrounds you. Getting rid of unnecessary bulk and putting on layers of clothing made of cozy and warm materials is the most effective way for keeping warm out in the markets. Or, you can grab a mulled wine as well, that is totally on you!


    The enchanted city that is Vienna is made even more impressive during the holiday season when market stalls begin to appear all over the place in the city’s squares. Vienna is home to more than a dozen beautiful markets that range in size and style from quaint and cozy to grand and elegant.  It should come as no surprise that it is one of the most popular sites in Austria for Christmas markets. One more reason to come and visit this amazing city!


    Are you interested in finding out more information about Vienna’s Christmas markets, or perhaps you require some assistance in organizing your own vacation to the city?


    When exactly do the Christmas markets in Vienna begin to open? The majority of the markets begin somewhere in the middle of November (between the 11th and the 22nd), and they run until the 23rd of December. There are even some of them that are open on Christmas day. Be prepared for huge crowds and a lot of tourists!

    Plan your vacation to begin after the 20th of November if you want to be certain that all of the markets will be open during your stay and book your HeyMi Apartment well in advance to secure your place.
