Icecream during Christmas Markets?

We are coming in late November for the Christmas markets. I am an icecream lover.

Are there any cafes which also sell a small range of icecream flavours - for a sundae - in late November? Within easy walking distance of Albertinaplatz please? The main icecream stores seem to be shutting down then!

most cafes and restaurants still sell ice delicacies in winter!

I think Zanoni and Zanoni’s main shop on the corner of Lugeck and Rotenturmstrasse remains open all year.

Thank you - sadly their website says they are only open from March to October. We are south of Stephansplatz - is there any nearby café you would recommend for its icecream?

Of course eating cold ice cream in Winter is not the main selling period.

I guess some Bortolotti Cafes are still open and you would get ice cream there.

You are looking at their branch on Burgring. The one on Lugeck is 10-15 minutes walk from Albertinaplatz, hardly a long trek to get your ice cream fix!
