The Christmas market at Karlsplatz, Vienna

23.11. to 23.12.2018

25 Years of arts and crafts, and entertainment of the highest quality

For 25 years, ART ADVENT has focused on quality: exceptional craftwork, organic catering and the best entertainment programme. People appreciate our high standards – we have repeatedly been voted the favourite advent market in the city. We are particularly happy about this recognition, as the original founders were motivated by precisely this idea: moving away from kitschy commercial goods and cheap junk, towards quality regional products. Each piece is unique, the product originating from the ideas and abilities of one person. The revenue provides a basic income for the craftspeople, their families and their suppliers, as well as bringing them joy. For 25 years now!

We look forward to celebrating our birthday with you in proper style! We'll have a merry celebration, with a range of products and entertainment acts in the quality that you’ve come to expect from ART ADVENT, and lots of birthday surprises.
