- Alternatively, you can take the tram lines 10 or 58 from the city center to Schönbrunn. Both tram lines stop at Schönbrunn Palace.
- If you prefer to take the bus, you can take the 10A bus from Karlsplatz to Schönbrunn Palace. The bus stop is located near the main entrance to the palace.
If you first visit Schönbrunn, do not miss out on the other programs available at the location. Walk around in the castle gardens, join a tour inside the castle, or bring your kids along and visit the fantastic zoo.
Easter market at Freyung & Hof.
These are two Easter markets very close to one another. You will find Christmas markets at both locations before Christmas, and even though the Easter markets might not feel as majestic and impressive as the Easter markets, they are still worth visiting.
You can easily get here as you walk from Stephansplatz along Graben, then continue along Bognergasse. This is a fantastic walk in itself and you will see fantastic shops and in Bognergasse you will meet a lot of luxurious stores. But, don’t spend your money there. Wait until you arrive at the Easter markets at Hof and Freyung.
What should you buy at these markets? The market at Freyung is primarily known for its wide selection of eggs. Here you can buy beautifully looking eggs that are made in a way that makes them easy to hang in the window as you travel home. This might be the closest you will get to an authentic Easter market. It should be mentioned that Freyung isn’t a big square like Hof, nor is the area in front of Schönbrunn. It feels more like a misshaped square; you wouldn’t expect anything to be located here. Still, it is a lovely area to visit.
If you’d rather eat eggs than use them as decorations, you will also find marzipan eggs and other egg-formed snacks at the different Easter markets in Vienna.
