Christkindlmarkt at Klagenfurt am Wörthersee
As the snow glistens on the surrounding mountains and the Wörthersee sparkles with ice crystals, Klagenfurt lights up with its Christmas market.
The scent of mulled wine and baked goods permeate the chilly air around Neuer Platz, while stalls sell handmade ornaments, jewelry and toys, as well as other regional specialties. It's considered one of the best Christmas Markets in Austria.
An additional market focusing on crafts can be found at Domplatz in front of the cathedral.
