If you life nearby Vienna or you’ve plans to visit us by the next days, we really recommend to spend an hour or two at the Easter Market in Vienna’s first district close to ‘Schottenkirche’, directly at the ‘Freyung’, one of Vienna’s most beautiful squares.
But be warned! You’ve to keep an eye on your wallet because here you will find the biggest selection of most beautiful Easter Eggs in town. You can visit the market every day between 10.00 and 19.30 until Wednesday next week. They claim to have up to 40.000 eggs on sale this year – so I’m sure the perfect one is also waiting there for you!
And the best of all is that you can take a lot of great pictures completely for free. So get your back off the sofa, take out your camera and move on to shoot!
See you there >:o)

Eastern is celebrated every year between March 22 and April 25. For Christians, it’s a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave, and that those who believe will also experience eternal life.
It is an Austrian tradition to decorate a bush outside the house or cut pussy willow branches inside with Easter Eggs at this time.

Last Sunday we had really perfect weather here in Vienna. After a long cold time without a lot of sun it was a perfect day to walk our cameras. So we decided to visit ‘Zoo Schönbrunn’ – Vienna’s well-known and famous zoo – to take some nice pictures. By the way – If you’ve plans taking a trip to Vienna I strongly recommend to visit Schönbrunn – you won’t regret it – trust me
So … I got my Nikon D700 Camera + Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR lens with me and my wife brought a Nikon D3100 and also a Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR with her. Due to the harsh light caused by direct sun we didn’t get home many ‘keepers’ but nevertheless we had a very relaxing time … it is a great pleasure to sense the coming of spring ….
