Vienna’s Christmas Markets – level 2

24-11-2017 07:00

Vienna’s Christmas markets are famous and are now officially open to the public. One of the biggest markets with around 150 stalls is in front of the town hall.

Visitors from all over the world come to these markets to see a 26-metre high Christmas tree, to see fine detailing on the art and buildings, and to get some mulled wine.

Two tourists say that they researched what Christmas markets might be the best to visit. Vienna showed up the most often to them, so they went to visit, and now they are really happy with their choice.

Difficult words: stall (a small shop), detailing (small, decorative features), mulled wine (hot wine that has spices mixed in it).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
