They are one of the most delicious traditions of the celebration. The traditional Krapfen are filled with the apricot jam. You can buy them in the bakeries and restaurants of Vienna during the carnival season that usually runs from Epiphany (January, 6) until Shrove Tuesday, the last day before the Lent being the best occasion to buy them.
