Vienna Hotels For Christmas – Markets and Concerts At Your Doorstep

Vienna Hotels for Christmas. If you are in Vienna for Christmas, do you want a place near Christmas markets, or a romantic hideaway? I have found a few perfect places right next to Christkindlmärkte, seasonal concert venues, churches and Christmas shopping.

Alternatively, look at my finds in tranquil outskirts with village character for a romantic hideaway. Here are my top choices for Christmas in Vienna.

Best Vienna Hotels Near Christmas Markets

Steigenberger Hotel Herrenhof Wien, Vienna

Vienna Hotels for Christmas: Steigenberger Hotel HerrenhofVienna Hotels for Christmas. The four star hotel is located at a stone’s throw from traditional Altwiener Weihnachtsmarkt at Freyung, and minutes from Christkindlmarkt in front of Vienna City Hall. In fact, another smaller market in front of Hofburg Imperial Palace is also around the corner. If you love advent concerts, insider tip Minoriten Church with its regular seasonal music events is a few minutes walk.

Visitors mostly praise the hotel’s excellent breakfast buffet and their friendly staff. Tip: ask to visit the urban beehive on the hotel’s roof – fantastic city views included.

Radisson Blu Style Hotel

Like the Steigenberger, this luxury hotel is set conveniently between the Altwiener Weihnachtsmarkt at Freyung and the Christkindlmarkt.

You will also be next door to the Freyung passage luxury shopping mall, and to our illustrous Cafe Central.

Hotel Lameé

Looking at Lameé itself, the hotel is just a few years old and boasts glamorous 1930’s style interiors. At five minutes walk you can attend the advent concerts at our landmark St. Stephen’s Cathedral, and those at Peterskirche.

DO & CO Hotel Vienna

Walk 10 minutes towards Alsergrund district, and you will discover the lovely secluded Christmas village at the University campus of the Old Vienna hospital (‘Altes AKH’) – a must!

Best Peaceful Vienna Hotels For Christmas

Schloss Wilhelminenberg

Vienna Hotels for Christmas: Schloss WilhelminenbergVienna Hotels for Christmas. If you look for a Vienna Woods retreat close to the city, this castle is located right in the hills of Western Vienna. Besides providing stunning views of Vienna, the early 20th-century castle in Second Empire style impresses with a beautiful historic breakfast room and scenic castle terrace. A caveat for luxury dwellers are the somewhat outdated rooms.

For switching off and taking walks through the quiet residential area of Wilhelminenberg this place is priceless. Don’t miss nearby Liebhartstaler Bockkeller, a fin-de-siecle concert venue which regularly stages original Viennese folk song events.

Where to book: Customer reviews and best rates.

Schloss Weikersdorf

Vienna Hotels for Christmas: Schloss Weikersdorf Vienna Hotels for Christmas. Located in the Southern Vienna Woods, this Renaissance Castle in the spa town Baden bei Wien is the perfect hideaway. While the main lobby, restaurant and ‘Lipizzaner Bar’ exude palatial glamour, the rooms are contemporary, and spacious. Since the hotel is just opposite from my mother’s apartment I have been at Schloss Weikersdorf several times for lunch and a Sunday breakfast. Do also try the spa’s wildflower bath.
