Spring and Easter time

In the garden pavilion of the Haus zum Kirschgarten, an impressive bouquet of more than 150 artistically painted Easter eggs awaits visitors again at Easter time. In the cosy garden and on the ground floor of the house, children can take part in the popular Easter search game and win a chocolate bunny.

For those who prefer a virtual search game: the search for objects from our collection in the 3D model is open again. If the solution word is found, a prize can be collected from us.

 Further down you can also download a great colouring picture.

 We wish you lots of fun and good entertainment.

In the virtual map, near of each object you will find an orange circle. When you click on a circle, a window will open that displays the letter it is associated with. Write down the letter in the box beneath the picture of the object on the solution sheet. Don't forget to write the solution in the boxes at the bottom of the sheet once you have found all of the letters!
