What will happen on December 24, Christmas Eve?
Most people will stay at home with their families….and all those who listen carefully–young and old alike–can still hear it: the little bell that rings after the “Christkind” has slipped into the living room and brought the presents. Now the waiting is over … The door opens and the children, red-cheeked with eyes shining, stand in front of the festively decorated and illuminated Christmas tree. And once again the “Christkind” managed to fly away unnoticed …
To make the waiting for “Christkind” shorter, kids can bake their own cookies at the bakery and crafts stations inside Vienna City Hall or make their own gift at the Schoenbrunn Cristmas Market. The Circus- & Clownmuseum offers a special Christmas magic show and the Haus des Meeres has different animal feedings every full hour. Why not take a DDSG boat trip with a special Christmas program for kids?
The Children Adventure Train Tour (for kids aged 2 – 7) through the Prater has three fun stops and it will run until 6 January. In the afternoon everything will close in town, but there are some Restaurants open on Christmas Eve. The Vienna lines will run like on Saturdays. On 25 & 26 Dec. all shops will be closed except some at the train stations, airport and General Hospital (AKH).
