Let’s talk about Pickwick’s

Oven by Pickwick's at Freyung, Vienna

On my walks along the Christmas markets of Vienna I came across ovens labeled with the company sign Pickwick’s for several times. I love the style of the ovens and the sound of the company’s name. Does anyone know where this company is from and did you see this kind of ovens at the Christmas market of your place as well?

Weihnachtsmarkt at Schloss Schönbrunn, Vienna

Christmas market at Schloss Schönbrunn in Vienna, Austria

The Kultur- und Weihnachtsmarkt Schloss Schönbrunn is situated at the Ehrenhof (Cour d’honneur) of Schloss Schönbrunn (Schonbrunn Palace). I was especially impressed by the splendid setting, the lively concerts on a stage in the middle of the Christmas market and the offered goods which varied from Hungarian shadow theatres made of paper to incense smokers made at the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains) of Germany.

Weihnachtsdorf at Schloss Belvedere, Vienna

Christmas market at Schloss Belvedere in Vienna, Austria

The Weihnachtsdorf Schloss Belvedere is situated at the southern side of Schloss Belvedere (Belvedere Palace). I loved it for the great setting and the stars located at the pond in front of it. The offered goods were the general stuff. I’d recommend this Christmas market especially for enjoying this view in front of a Baroque palace which offers a great collection of Austrian paintings (e.g. Klimt, Schiele) at the State Gallery inside.
