Colorful tiles on the roof of St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna

Spring awakening & Easter in Vienna

The Easter market in front of Schönbrunn Palace is considered to be one of the most roman­tic Easter markets. In front of the backdrop of the palace, 60 exhibitors offer all sorts of culinary plea­sures as well as decorative Easter decorations and handicrafts from Austria. Children have fun in the Easter Bunny workshop, where they shape marzi­pan bunnies and make Easter flower arrangements, in the Easter nest hunt and in the Kindermuseum, while the adults enjoy the entertainment at „Jazz at the Easter Market“.

Every year, the Old Viennese Easter market on Freyung, a pretty old square in the Old City, builds the biggest tower of eggs in Europe, with around 40,000 painted Easter eggs. There are also nume­rous Easter specialties ranging from the Osterpinze Easter bread to the roast Easter lamb, handicrafts, floristry and for the very little ones a creative Easter workshop, puppet games and a rabbit hutch.

The handicraft market on Am Hof square is also fully given over to Easter customs with skil­fully decorated eggs and flower arrangements and also offers pretty handicrafts.

An entertaining Easter party awaits visitors young and old on Easter Sunday on 27 March 2016 in the Prater. There’s live music, an Eas­ter parade and a colorful children’s program with theater and a thrilling magic show.
