In the garden pavilion of the Haus zum Kirschgarten, an impressive bouquet of more than 200 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.
A collection of 18th and 19th century copper moulds is displayed in the pavilion's showcases. They could be used for sweet and savoury baked goods or for jellied dishes of various compositions.
Further down you can also download a great colouring picture.
We wish you lots of fun and good entertainment.
