It is with great regret that we have to inform you that ART ADVENT cannot take place due to the Government's decision on Christmas markets.

We are planning a Spring Market 2021. If you would like to be kept up to date, please enter your mail address to receive our Newsletter

In the meantime you could visit us in our webshop and purchase presents for your loved ones.

There is no market newspaper this year. We shall make a note of your address and send you a copy next year.

The Christmas Market at Karlsplatz Vienna
where the crafts and entertainment form a symbiosis

For good reason this is one of the most popular Christmas Markets in the city: ART ADVENT at Karlsplatz. Choice arts and crafts on the one hand, organic catering and diverse spectacles on the other. People appreciate our high aspirations.

We are not just organisers: we produce our own unique products and offer them for sale. We choose our guest exhibitors with care, we put our musical programme together and fortify ourselves at our caterers. We are ART ADVENT.

We wish to bestow you and ourselves with a wonderful time in Advent. We shall spoil you, entertain you and entice you to purchase our products, because that's how we make our living.

We look forward to a marvellous time together with you and your dearest: at ART ADVENT 2020!

Due to Corona there will not be a stage show this year. But you will come across our organ grinder with his Lerchenauer Organ who will entertain you on many spots in the market. Weather permitting our organ grinder wanders around the market place playing a great variety of melodies.
