When I arrived in Vienna a year ago[a] I lived at Mühlgasse in the 4th district, which was just a stone's throw from Karlsplatz. With all the Christmas markets opening I figured I'd go back and check out the market there - see if it had changed at all since last year.
Just like last year there is an "Engel" (Angel) performance each evening. This time the angel is suspended in a geodesic sphere.
And of course there were lots of little stands all over.
The Karlsplatz Cafe, right next to the subway station.
