Yeah, I know back home y’all have crocuses, buttercups and birds. Here in Vienna, nothing says “spring” like icy sidewalks, biting winds, and fragile stacks of $15 eggs for sale.
As long as you are bundled up, Easter markets are a great place to enjoy a glass of new wine and a yummy snack while snapping photos, however. (Click to see larger versions with captions.)

Langos is fried bread. I had it stuffed with ham and cheese and brushed with garlic butter. Yep.
Lots of wine.
Giant donuts, of course.
Bundled up for Easter. Good thing there is wine.
My husband left with one of these objets d’art.
Austrian lawn art.
The Freyung Easter market, just up the street.
Gazilions of eggs.
All prices in Euros.
Hand-painted and embossed.
This is the Eastern European style.

Yet more petit point
More lawn art
