Christmas with kids in Vienna (indoors edition) – December 2023

weinachten für kinder wien 2023

What to do with a child in Vienna – when it’s cold outside

When it’s cold, windy and wet outside, a Christmas market might not be everyone’s cup of tea (or punsch). We have put together a list of Christmas-themed events and activities in Vienna where you can spend the festive season indoors – warm and cosy. Christmas with kids in Vienna is fun indoors as well as outdoors!

With a little advance planning, we hope you can find something exciting to do for the whole family.

Please note, pre-bookings are always welcome and many events sell out quickly.
