Vienna’s Christmas markets are very famous. They are open to the public right now. One of the biggest markets is in front of the town hall. It has 150 stalls.

Visitors come from all over the world to visit these markets. They can see a 26-metre high Christmas tree. They can see beautiful art and buildings. They can get mulled wine.

Two tourists are very happy to visit Vienna’s markets. They say that they looked up many Christmas markets. They like Vienna’s the best.

Difficult words: open to the public (open to everyone), stall (a little shop), mulled wine (hot wine that has spices in it), look up (find information about something).
