Near the apartments here in Hernals, the 17th district, the next highlight waits for you. From 29th March to 16th April the Kalvarienbergfest takes place again. You really can become active here and make some Easter presents at the art workshops. Live music and a cheerful children's program complete the program.

A very special Easter market is the vegan Easter market in the Arcotel Kaiserwasser on the 8th and 9th of April, where it is all about vegan alternatives. Rüdiger Dahlke, the well-known doctor, author and passionate vegan, will also be present. There is a wide vegan range of food and beverages, fashion and art, as well as a colorful, lively social program.
