The Viennese girl presents Christmas in Vienna. – It was a while ago when I talked with Lorin from Canajvisuals.com over a cup of coffee, and asked him to help me create a video that will showcase how magical Vienna is during the Christmas season. This is the first time that I’m doing a video for The Viennese Girl blog, and it is also the first time that I worked with Lorin. I explained to him what exactly I had in my mind and how I wanted the final result to be. It should be magical with a fairy tale feeling. It should be exactly how Christimas in Vienna is, and it should stay true to the philosophy and the style of The Viennese Girl blog. Everything went perfectly. The only problem we faced was the music. We both had in mind two well-known beautiful songs and we knew that one of the two would complement our video beautifully. But it turned out to be impossible to get them because of the super expensive copyright license. We had to find another solution. However, I loved working with Lorin, especially for the reason that he takes my opinion into consideration and we have something in common: we are both perfectionists. We strive for perfection, and we worked hard despite the freezing cold out there to create something that you will love to watch. This is our way of wishing you a Merry Christmas. If you like the video Christmas in Vienna, feel free to leave a comment (because I am so curious to know your thoughts….) ♥

This will be my fourth Christmas in Vienna, my fourth Christmas abroad. I remember that when I was in Athens, I had always dreamed of celebrating Christmas abroad but a Christmas season travel to one (any) of the European cities had always remained a dream. I don’t know exactly why, but I guess maybe because either high prices during Christmas or none of my friends wanting to come with me in the season deterred me from traveling in the past.
When I came to Vienna, things changed completely. I realized that it doesn’t really matter whether you celebrate Christmas abroad or at home. What matters the most is having around you, not only on Christmas but especially on Christmas, people who love you and make you laugh out loud.
Vienna puts on her best clothes to welcome Christmas and all its guests. Imagine how many people visit Vienna for Christmas. And I know why. Tell me where else in the world you can find such a beautiful street decoration. In my opinion, all the streets are well decorated but my favourite are the chandeliers in Graben. Impressive and elegant at the same time. But it’s not only the festive decoration on the streets. Have you visited the Christmas markets and can say which one is your favourite? The Christmas market at Rathausplatz is the most visited, that’s why, even if I like it, you will never see me there within the crowds. My favourite is at the Spittelberg area in the 7th district. But you should definitely not miss the Christmas market of Maria-Theresien-Platz, the one at Schloss Belvedere, the one at Karlsplatz, and at Unicampus in the 9th district and many others. When we talk about Christmas, how can I forget the first post of this blog?
So let’s summarize dear friends: if you are dreaming of magical, unforgettable, dashing Christmas holidays, book a flight to Vienna, pack your things, and take your friends with you. Remember: only those who make you laugh out loud because life (and Christmas) is better when you are laughing.
So this is Christmas and what have you done, another year over, and a new one just begun..
You don’t have to ask yourself when is the right time to visit the capital of Austria. Vienna is famous especially during the Christmas time for its Christmas market, for the decoration and for the festive spirit that you come across all over the city.
“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.
To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy,
is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” Calvin Coolidge
I hope you all have the chance to visit this fantastic city during the Christmas season.
Have a Lovely Happy New Year!
