The Christmas market at Karlsplatz, Vienna

23.11. to 23.12.2018

25 Years of arts and crafts, and top quality performing artistes

For 25 years ART ADVENT has focused on quality: namely exceptional craftwork, organic catering and the best entertaining acts. People appreciate our high standards. Over and over again we are chosen as the favourite market in the city. We are happy about this support in as much as the original founders were motivated precisely by this idea: they rejected kitschy commercial wares and cheap junk and embraced regional quality products. Each piece unique, originating from the ideas and abilities of one person. Sales provide a basic income for the makers, their families and suppliers. And brings them joy! For over 25 years!

We are happy to celebrate our birthday with you in due fashion! We'll have a merry celebration with a well-proven range of products, that stand for ART ADVENT and also many birthday surprises.
