Everything You Need to Know About the Mozart’s Christmas Lights Show


It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Meaning it’s time for all of the Austin Christmas traditions to return. Getting things started a little early this year is Mozart’s Coffee with their annual Christmas Light Show.


In 2020, the COVID Cautious Christmas Light Show introduced us to a reserved tables system. This year, reserved tables are back but you’ll have to pay a fee to secure one. However, if you’re looking to attend for free, you have that option too. You’ll still have to make a reservation though.

Here’s how the new Mozart’s Christmas Light Show admission works:

Option 1 – Reserve a table for an up-close viewing experience of the immersive Mozart’s 2023 Christmas Light Show right here. There are standing tables and seated tables. Four person tables are $40 and six person tables are $60. Fees apply and tables can be reserved for one hour shifts.

Option 2 – If you’re looking for the free option, you can register for free admission to the Bavarian Marketplace Standing Group. You will receive one ticket per person and your registration allows you access for either a 6 to 9 p.m. time slot or a 9 p.m. to Midnight slot. Reserve tickets for the Bavarian Marketplace here.

Option 3 – Back again is the Nautical Light Show! Book a fully captained boat cruise to and from Mozart’s Coffee and view. the show on the water. Ticket package prices start at $30 per person for a shared boat / multi group. Get more info on boat tours here.

Returning again in 2023, Mozart’s is featuring a dance floor and silent disco to get you off your feet and dance! And get this… the stage is actually one that was used in a Taylor Swift tour! That’s why it’s called “Taylor Swift’s Dance Floor.” Don’t worry, they’ll use a variety of music, not just Taylor Swift songs.

The dance floor will be open Thursdays through Saturdays, December 1 through 30. It is located in the elevated parking lot directly up the stairs from the deck above all of the reserved tables. On Fridays and Saturdays, tickets for a 10 or 11 p.m. time slot are available for $19.95 plus a $1.40 fee and can be purchased here.

One more thing! Dogs are allowed with table reservations but only one dog per table (not one dog per person).
