Come with us to one of the largest and most spectacular Easter Egg markets in Germany. A bounty of Springtime treasures is waiting to be discovered inside the halls of Castle Schloss Schwetzingen, a masterpiece of rare beauty and rich variety, where the market is held. The quality merchandise of the egg market draws shoppers from all over the country for the chance to purchase unique, artisanal Easter eggs. These decorative treasures range from simple to exquisite, and from locally crafted to rare foreign gems. The eggs you’ll find come in every material and style imaginable – hollowed-out bird eggs, wood, glass, ceramic, paper and other materials using both traditional and contemporary methods.
The Schwetzingen Palace and Royal Gardens offer the perfect backdrop for this market. Schwetzingen Palace Gardens are a cultural heritage site of European significance: more than one hundred sculptures are scattered throughout this wonderful-- and at times surprising-- landscape. An assortment of whimsical buildings lends an exotic touch. The Apollotempel (temple of Apollo), a small, round building, houses a statue of the ancient Greek god of light and the arts, playing the lyre. Tummies and tastebuds will be equally tempted by the restaurants and cafés (not included) surrounding the castle.
