Obviously this x-mas-market does not exist anymore !!!
BUT at the Moment I leave the Infos here, maybe they Change their mind !

The Adventmarkt am Steinhof is the only christmas-market in the outskirts of Vienna that is worth seeing for some special reasons : First of all it is quite small and rather old-fashioned and all of the handicrafts that you may buy there are made by the mentally sick people in the "Otto-Wagner-Spital". So you also make sure that these people may see the "fruits of their work" and you get something, that you will not find at any other place.

Adventmarkt am Steinhof was open in 2008
only the first 3 weekends of Advent !!!
ONLY Friday-Sunday + December 8th
from 02.00 p.m. till 07.00p.m.
On each saturday you may combine it with a visit
of the "Otto-Wagner-Kirche"
For the children : Pony-riding

What to buy: stationary, nativity-cribs, candles, mirrors in mosaique-technique, wooden handicrafts, ceramics etc. all made by the mentally sick people of the hospital

What to pay: Prices are average, Punch and other drinks are obviously ONLY available NON-alcoholic !!!

Directions: Take the Bus 48A, it starts at the Ringstrasse, close to the parliament, get out at the terminus, that market is in the first court of the hospital !
