The Kufstein Easter Market is one of the most memorable culinary and cultural markets in Austria. The picturesque setting in the snowy mountains of Tirol will boost the character and charm of this market.
For two days the fortress city of Kufsteinerland transforms into a culinary haven filled with local delicacies. A visit to this market is not complete when you do not eat the local delicacy ‘Kiachl’. This is a fried pastry covered with powdered sugar. The Easter bunny’s on the market might treat your children with some eastern eggs, or you might want to watch the funny street theater while you are eating cotton candy.
It is not just about the food at the Kufstein Easter Market. This is also the place to learn more about traditional handicrafts and to watch the local craftsmen at work. You are welcome to paint your handicraft and Easter eggs. If you love shopping and markets this is the place to be.
