This morning we had the first snow fall this season in Vienna. Not a lot, just a few flurries, but we decided to celebrate the arrival of winter with a trip to the Christmas market and a mug of hot wine. For our season opener we chose the biggest market in town in front of Rathaus (city hall), which will turn into a crowded tourist magnet soon. Since it was a work night, and it’s not quite Christmas travel season, it was almost quiet. And cold. Boy, it was cold!
