Easter excursions and event tips

Just like Christmas, Easter is a real family festival. Everyone comes together to paint Easter eggs, go for hikes, or enjoy family outings. This page contains a number of fun ideas for the Easter long weekend, as well as recreation tips for the upcoming Easter holidays.

Easter at the zoo

After a long winter hibernation, the first baby animals now await visitors at Saxony's zoos. The whole family can look forward to some animal fun with the Easter show in Leipzig and Dresden zoos.

Easter on steam trains

A steam-train ride to the Easter field is an experience for the whole family.

Easter at palaces and castles

Dresden's palaces and castles also have a number of events on offer. Who says Easter-egg hunts should always just be in your own garden? Königsstein Fortress is sure to have the odd adventurous hiding place.

Easter markets

A number of Easter markets from Leipzig to Bautzen are the perfect places for strolling, craft-making and fun.
