Easter at Salzburg Open-Air-Museum
A special tip around Easter time is the Salzburg Open-Air-Museum in Großgmain. The Easter market offers colorful entertainment for young and old.
The children can paint and decorate eggs, or learn how to bind a palm tree. But also for the parents the Ostermarkt offers all sorts of things - regional farmers' stalls offer traditional specialties, such as Easter ham, crispy wood-fired bread, bacon and cheese, as well as sweet sins like Pofesen.
The special Easter highlight in the Open-Air-Museum is the Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday, where colorful Easter eggs are hidden on the grounds of the Open-Air-Museum and are just waiting to be discovered by little explorers!
