It's that time again, the year 2019 is coming to an end and so Christmas is approaching considerably. We wanted to use the Sunday afternoon to look at the local Christmas markets.
So we started from the campsite Wien West first on foot, then with the line 4 of the Viennese S-Bahn on the way to Stephansplatz, one of the many Christmas markets of Vienna, due to its fantastic location right at the foot of the Vienna landmark, the cathedral St. Stephan.
