No other time of year is more magical than the holiday season anywhere than in Europe, but Vienna certainly knows how to do it best!
Have you visited Germany before or know someone who has fallen so head over heels in love with the country that you wished you could either live here or take it home with you?

This tradition is so ingrained into the culture that UNESCO has declared it as an “Intangible Cultural Heritage” since 2011 and is therefore one of the best things to eat & drink in Vienna.
