German Christmas Market
Be found at this special holiday destination if you love celebrating Christmas in the traditional Germany style. This annual event is organized by the German-Texan Heritage Society and got everything it takes to make the holiday feel like a festival rather than an art fair.
You will find holiday themed nutcrackers, ornaments, pyramids, candle arches, decorations, linens, and baked goods. The amazing part of shopping from this market is that all purchases are tax-free.
Zilker Park Light Trails
This is the biggest Holiday tree that represents the vibrant Austin tradition. It is located at Moonlight Tower and is a whole 360 feet wide. Folks that loves spinning every year never miss this adorable event during the holiday.
Who wouldn’t want to see the amazing light display with over 1.25 miles of light trails? Seeing the Zilker tree burst in the dark nights takes the festive season to another level. I guess this is a must-have holiday experience.
That is not the end of the story; there are several sculpture arrangements, huge Ferris wheel, and food trailers.
Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center
This is where excellent shopping opportunities meet with a fun-filled holiday experience. You can enjoy beautiful winter gardens, artists, artisans, wood products, paintings, apparel and more at a discount. Enjoy your holiday in style with perfect gifts. Additionally, admission is free.
