Although a visit that straddles November and December might include some very cold days, it would also provide an opportunity to visit Vienna’s Christmas Markets that open around the middle of November and last until Christmas. At last count, Vienna had thirteen different Christmas markets (see http://www.vienna4u.at/christmasmarket.html for descriptions and locations). My favorites are the old Vienna Christkindlmarkt at Freyung; the large, colorful Christkindlmarkt in front of the Vienna city hall; and the Christmas village (Weihnachtsdorf) located at the old hospital, which is now part of the University of Vienna.

When you know the days that you plan to be in Vienna, it makes sense to purchase tickets for major cultural events in advance. Of course, the earlier you decide which events you want to attend, the more likely you will be able to buy tickets before the event is sold out. Also, you are more likely to be able to find tickets in your preferred price range. There seems to be no shortage of tickets costing several hundred dollars each, but ticket costing $30 to $60 each are much harder to find for the more popular events.
