and a music program await you at Vienna's Easter Markets during
March. There is all kinds of entertainment for the little ones.
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 countless Easter specialties to go with it, from the Easter loaf to baked Easter lambs, an Easter arts-and-crafts workshop for the little ones, puppet shows and a rabbit hutch. The Arts and Crafts Market Am Hof is also completely on the theme of Easter traditions and offers decorative crafts.
Long before Easter begins the Kalvarienberg Market, a traditional Viennese Lent market, will get you in the mood for the holidays. The market offers all kinds of entertainment, especially for children - from a carousel to a children's train, from pony rides to ship swings.
An entertaining Easter Festival awaits visitors young and old on 31 March in the Prater. There's live music, an Easter parade and a colorful children's program with theater and a spectacular magic show.
