Vienna’s Christmas Markets – level 3

24-11-2017 07:00

Vienna’s famous Christmas markets have officially opened to the public. One of the biggest stands right in front of the town hall and has around 150 stalls.

The 26-metre-high Christmas tree, fine detailing and traditional mulled wine made from a local grape attract visitors from all over the world.

Two Australian tourists said that they did a bit of research on what Christmas market would be the best to visit. Vienna seemed to be the place that popped up the most, and now they are really happy with their choice.

Difficult words: stall (a small shop that can be taken down or put up easily), detailing (small, decorative features on buildings or work of art), mulled wine (hot wine with spices mixed in it), pop up (show up in books or on the Internet).
