A highlight at Easter is the Manner old-timer tram. Manner is a traditional Austrian company which is famous worldwide for its Neapolitan wafers in particular and the fact that its delicious products have pink wrapping. Also this year, both visitors to the city and locals can take a little sightseeing tour on the special pink old-timer tram, free of charge. The journey begins at Karlsplatz and continues on the Ringstrasse (the road encircling the city’s 1st district), passing points of interest such as the State Opera, the Parliament or the University of Vienna – until it reaches Schottentor, from where the return journey begins. The special guest of honour on the tour is the Easter Bunny, Manni, who gives out sweet Easter treats to all passengers.
