Secret tip

A secret tip is the Christmas market on the Hungerburg. Easy to reach daily via the - how could it be otherwise - Hungerburgbahn. The smaller and more comfortable version of the Christkindlmarket impresses with a magnificent view over the city. During a mulled wine you look at the panorama up to the Bergisel, which with its Olympic ski jump is certainly one or the other ski flying fan a term.
