The Easter market at Schönbrunn Palace is considered to be among the most romantic Easter markets. With the Baroque palace in the background 60 exhibitors offer not only all kinds of culinary delights but also beautiful Easter decorations and crafts from all over Austria. Children having fun in the marzipan Easter Bunny workshop, making Easter flower arrangements, on the Easter Nest Hunt and in the Children's Museum, while the grown-ups enjoy the entertainment at "Jazz at the Easter Market".

The Old Vienna Easter Market at the Freyung, a beautiful old square in the Old City, piles up the largest mountain of Easter eggs in Europe every year totaling about 40,000 painted Easter eggs. There are also numerous Easter specialties from Osterpinze Easter bread to roast Easter lamb, craftwork, floristry and, for the little ones, an Easter handicraft workshop, puppet plays and a rabbit pen. The Altwiener Easter Market is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year with a big party on 5 April.

The handicraft market Am Hof is packed with Easter traditions, including artistically decorated eggs and flower arrangements, and also offers pretty handicrafts. For the first time this year, an Easter market is being held in the courtyard of the Altes AKH. Surrounded by the beautiful old park on the University Campus, 25 vendors are selling their handicrafts, Easter decorations and culinary treats.

An entertaining Easter Festival awaits visitors young and old on Easter Sunday (20 April) in the Prater. There's live music, an Easter parade and a colorful children's program with theater and a spectacular magic show.
