It’s that time of year again!
Time to get excited about Austria’s Christmas markets
It’s back again, that wonderful run-up to Christmas. On the first weekend of Advent, Christmas markets will be opening their doors all over Austria. We invite you and your Högl shoes to visit the best ones at the Schloss Esterhazy palace in Eisenstadt, in Steyr or in Kitzbühel.

Great food, warm alcoholic drinks, Austrian hand-crafted gifts and atmospheric festive music all await visitors to the Christmas markets. Högl has put together a list of Austria’s best Christmas markets, where you can warm up with a mulled wine after work with colleagues, enjoy a day out with the family or pick up a few last-minute Christmas gifts.
