Easter in Germany

Last year we were in Germany for Easter and it is so hard not to think back to all the decorations and celebrations we saw while we were there.  Every town, shop and neighborhood gave us a reason to want to celebrate the season. 

We especially enjoyed reading that this town square requested we avoid touching any of the 3,000 hand-blown eggs that were part of this display. 

Look at the woman's head to the left of this egg...this thing was HUGE!!!
  Every evening as the sun went down we would observe the hillsides covered with Easter bonfires.  You can learn more about the tradition of the bonfires here  I've done some decorating but nothing that compares to the Easter celebrations I was able to observe last year.  Meanwhile I'm looking forward to Easter fun with the grandgirls. 


  1. OMG, I think Germany must be such a special place to visit for holidays like this. So much inspiration in each of the photos. Thanks for sharing. ~ Sarah

  2. It is interesting that the Easter colors in Germany are so different than here---Here, everything is "pastel".....!
    Wishing you and yours a VERY HAPPY EASTER....!

  3. All those hand blown eggs are amazing and it looked like Germany knows how to decorate for Easter. Happy Easter to you and your family.

  4. How beautiful! I had no idea Germany was the Easter Capitol of the World. Those displays are absolutely stunning.

    Have a wonderful time with your granddaughters, Jojo. They grow up far too quickly!

    Easter Blessings,

  5. Wow, JoJo...I'm SO glad you reposted this, as I missed seeing it last year! What a wonderful trip & I am blown over by the way the Germans decorated for Easter! Amazing!

    Happy Easter, Honey to you & yours,

  6. Thanks for the nostalgic trip back to Germany. I had forgotten how much we enjoyed Easter and all the traditions when we lived there. Making a door wreath was one of my favourite things to do at Easter time in Bavaria.
