Rathausplatz Christkindl Christmas market

.

Frohe Weihnachten -- merry Christmas


from Vienna's famous Christkindlmarkt!


The Christmas market in the park is so big you might need this map for the "30 years of Vienna Magic of Advent."


The Rathaus City Hall makes a spectacular backdrop.


Even the trees are lit with decorative lights, each tree a different theme.


Hop on the train with the kids.




His machine was melting cheese onto bread for Raclette. 


All kinds of crepes, aka Palatschinken.


All the happy holy Viennese, young and old, posed with angel wings.
My five days in Vienna were indeed heavenly.

HI Dina. Merry Christmas and HAPPY HANNUKAH.
thankyou for the enchantment of this market.
My favourite christmas image is this year as
I walk home late at night there are only two
lights at the base of the tree projected upward
a red and green one to the summit of a beautiful
pine tree and I will always love the glitter of xmas
but it is the natural light that is the most
important.
LOVE AND HUGS AND HOPE FOR PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST
but I know there is often peace in your religious heart.
