Spring Awakening in Baroque surroundings
Easter Market at Schloss Hof
March 29th to 30th | April 5th to 6th
This year the traditional Easter Market at the Manor Farm opens its gates on two weekends, inviting you to partake in a festive start to a new season filled with plenty of Baroque adventure.
Stroll through the Manor Farm and gardens, that are starting to bloom, enjoy the pre-easter spirit and let yourself be temted into a charming gift or two, from a wide selection of handicrafts at the Easter Market. Witness the Marchfeld Palace in full force on this first weekend of the season. Thousands of tulips, daffodils and crown imperials have opened their buds to weave a colourful carpet of flowers. The market stands beckon with Easter handicraft and regional titbits from kitchen and cellar.
The Easter Bunny Workshop delights, with plenty of children’s activities, such as tying palm bushes, crafting Easter decorations, painting, riding ponies and riding carriages, while grownups get to enjoy the first tours of the gardens and a taste of the special exhibition “Glittering Spectacles – Celebrating at Court“ before it officially opens for the season.
