Hand-painted blown eggs at an Easter market in central Vienna

Here are some of the photo highlights from WGSN-homebuildlife's trip to Vienna last week, including striking architecture, elaborate Easter displays,sun-filled shopping streets and cakes at a traditional Viennese kaffeehaus.

Just in time for the Easter weekend, WGSN-homebuildlife took inspiration from Vienna's numerous Easter markets and the elaborate seasonal displays which adorn every coffeehouse, chocolatier's and cake shop in the city at this time of year.

You can also see our photo highlights from Ethiopia and Berlin.
