Colorful & varied - The Easter markets in Vienna

The Easter season is celebrated in Vienna colorful and diverse and as every year the traditional Easter markets wait for you again. Since a few days they have all opened again and are looking forward to your visit.

Imperial flair & historic city center

The Easter market with probably the most unique scenery is the Easter market in front of the Schönbrunn Palace. Around 60 exhibitors from Austria and the surrounding area are waiting for you. What I find particularly pleasant here in this market is that you have enough space to stroll and look around, as there is simply more space between the market stalls. For the youngest market visitors, there is a colorful and varied program here. Whether in the Easter Bunny workshop or during the easter nest hunt, fun and variety is guaranteed. And if you're already in Schönbrunn, then you can combine it with a visit to Schönbrunn Palace or the zoo. Or just take a spring walk through the beautiful park and end with a coffee in the coffee house in the Gloriette.

In the city center, two markets are waiting for you, the Altwiener Ostermarkt on the Freyung and the Ostermarkt am Hof.

At the Altwiener Ostermarkt you will not only find Easter handicrafts and culinary Easter specialties but you will also be able to marvel at Europe's largest Easter egg mountain with more than 40,000 painted Easter eggs. The colorful program with music and activities for children completes the visit.

From the Altwiener Ostermarkt you can then continue straight to the Ostermarkt am Hof, which also offers many varied market stalls and also provides you with culinary delights.

festive activites & flowery celebrations

More festive character than just market is the Kalvarienbergfest in the 17th district. Although there is also a small market here, the focus is above all on the colorful program. Whether it's art workshops, music or children's programs, there is something for everyone to be active and to be active by themselves.

Easter is very floral and natural in the flower gardens Hirschstetten. From March 31st to April 2nd, cheerful Easter celebrations take place. At the traditional Easter market there are Easter specialties such as Easter ham, cakes and other regional delicacies and additionally decorative handicrafts and Easter decorations. In addition to the market, a cheerful, nature-related supporting program awaits both children and adults alike.

So, which markets will you visit, which are your personal favorites? I wish you a nice Easter time in Vienna.
