You can truly feel the festive spirit of Austrian Easter at one of these colorful markets.
Schönbrunn Palace Easter Market (canceled in 2021)
The market by Schönbrunn Palace with its Baroque architecture is probably the most impressive among them. Be prepared to see lots of eggs—chocolate, handpainted, ceramic, and even special egg-shaped seats for an ultimate Easter experience. There you can buy crafts or decorations as well as try Austrian Easter specialties.
Easter Market at Freyung and Am Hof Easter Market (March 19–April 5, 2021, canceled)
The Easter Market at Freyung boasts the biggest egg pile as well as traditional arts and crafts. The markets at Am Hof and near the Campus of Vienna University also provide lots of opportunities to try various crafts and buy something unique.
