Great place
Dec. 2019 • Couples
A great Christmas market, not touristic at all but definitely among the top 3 in Vienna. The market is laid out as small village with wooden hats and oofers themed food and drinks from the 9 counties of Austria!

A very relaxing Christmas Market.
Dec. 2018 • Couples
The Christmas Market at Altes AKH is very beautiful with enough food stools selling very delicious food and moulid wine. The atmosphere is really relaxing and it is not so crowded, so if you would like to escape the hustle and bustle of bigger Christmas Markets here in the place to be.

Probably the least touristy Xmas Market in Vienna
Dec. 2018 • Family
Friends visiting so after having done the Rathaus Xmas Market we thought they should try something else. Here there is plenty of space no one bumping into you every 2 seconds. There is actually a decent food selection and also some entertainment for the little ones (like pony rides). All in all rather pleasant and not so hectic like the better known markets

FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MARKET
Dec. 2016 • Family
We visited about 20 markets on our europe trip and I think this one was my favorite. We didn't do a ton of shopping here, but I really loved the atmosphere an d the food. There was a light dusting of snow which made it truly magical. The way it is organized with little paths was just the best. Loved it!

A good Christmas Market!
Nov. 2016 • Family
This Christmas market has a good variety of shops, food and drinks! It's a bit hidden by the building on the street but quite rewarding to wander in it and drink and eat at one of the small standup tables inside the market area. If you have some time and would like chat with some friends while drinking gluvine, this is definitely a good place to do it.

Good cheap food in restaurant but Christmas market just average
Dec. 2015 • Couples
+ Vibrant, large and colourful, with the usual array of stalls selling decorations, wooden Christmas ornaments, hats, gloves, scarves, jewellery and numerous local delicacies and foreign ones.
- Noisy, crowded, repetitive offerings, without the atmosphere of some of the smaller markets.
But if in the restaurants you want typical Austrian dishes in a joyful, but ear-shattering levels of noise from your companions then this is Christmas after all!

little gem in the city
Apr. 2015 • Friends
A fantastically large beer garden hidden in the city's old hospital, both indoor and outdoor.
Good beers, and beer snacks! Friendly service. Just a shame about the amount of pigeons, and the fact they eat from the unattended plates.

A very pretty Christmas Market
Dec. 2014 • Family
I love Altes AKH (Allgemeines KrankenHaus) in both summer and winter. In summer, the several restaurants open up their outdoor areas. There is a play park in the centre for young children and dogs are always welcome. In the winter, the centre is jam packed with christmas market enthusiasts. The christmas market is cozy and smaller than others in Vienna, however the atmosphere that is created is just as great as the other markets in the city. This place is worth a visit, no matter the season :)

Nice Christmas Market, but very crowded
Dec. 2014 • Friends
The Christmas Market is located in a park with a lot of trees. It is very cosy and there are a lot of attractions for kids like a real donkey or a Ferries Wheel. We were there on Saturday evening and Sunday during the day and both times it was very crowded. The prices are moderate.
