A romantic, dazzling Winter Wonderland. The Altstadt Christmas Market counts among the most beautiful and romantic locations in the entire Alpine region. Maria-Theresien-Straße Market is lit up by glittering crystal trees. A Yuletide paradise for children presents itself at the Innsbruck Marktplatz Market ...
About four weeks before Christmas, Innsbruck opens its Christmas Markets - the beginning of the festive season: stalls invite to stroll around and maybe buy a gift, have a drink of hot tea or the stronger "Glühwein" (hot spicy wine) or try some of the spicy or sweet Christmas food.

Christmas Market in the Old Town
Innsbruck’s traditional Christmas Market is set before the Golden Roof and surrounded by medieval house facades. On a stroll through the market with over 70 stalls, you will find Christmas tree decorations, arts and crafts and a few curiosities.
A visit to the viewing platform over the hut rooftops or the enchanting “Fairy Tale and Giants‘ Alley” is an absolute must. Then round off your evening under the magnificent Christmas tree in
front of the Golden Roof, with the traditional sounds of the tower trumpeters filling the crisp air each day and a mug of mulled wine warming your hands.
