Easter Guide 2022

Spring has sprung and that means Easter is around the corner. We’ve put together a list of activities and events in and around Zug to put a spring in your step. Make the most of the season with one or several of these and before you know it, the Easter Bunny will be hopping your way.

Easter Workshops

Experience special Easter moments at the Lindt Home of Chocolate. Together with Lindt Maîtres Chocolatiers, you will make Easter creations, which you can take home beautifully packaged in an Easter basket. The chocolate workshop lasts 90 minutes and is suited from age 5 in accompaniment. Other on site highlights include the world’s biggest Lindt shop and a spectacular chocolate fountain.

Speaking of chocolate, at Confiserie Bachmann you can create personalized chocolate bunnies with your face or those of your loved ones. A unique and fun addition to any Easter assortment… just make sure to order in advance!

Get creative in the Easter cake workshop by The Baking Mom. The 6-hour workshop for adults will be held in English on April 2nd and is perfect for budding bakers who want to improve their skills, though you’ll want to hurry as only a limited number of places are available to begin with. For more information and registration, contact Danijela here.

Paint Easter eggs at the Ägeribad in Oberägeri. The session will take place from 2 to 4 pm on April 13th and is for children up to the age of 12. Participation is free of charge and registration is not required, although there may be short waiting times due to limited space. There is also a drawing competition that can be entered until April 14th - download the template here and hand it in at the entrance for a chance to win a child’s multi-entry pass.


Easter Market

Mooch about the Easter market by Lake Zug. There will be dozens of market stalls offering a wide variety of items, numerous food stands as well as a fun fair to keep the kids entertained!

Easter Brunch

Don’t miss out on the annual Easter brunch at the Parkhotel Zug. While adults will particularly appreciate the varied buffet, children can try their luck at finding the sweet treats hidden throughout the hotel on Easter Sunday and Monday.

Also the Tierpark Goldau will be offering an Easter brunch this year from 9am to noon on Easter Monday that is best combined with a visit of the zoo.


Easter Egg Hunts

Participate in the egg hunt on Mount Rigi where more than 400 eggs will be hidden on Easter Sunday. The idea is that once you find an egg, you hand it in at the restaurant in return for an instant prize plus an entry into the main prize draw. Please note that only one egg per person is allowed.

Seek Easter eggs at the Bibliothek Zug. From April 11th to April 20th from 9am to 7pm you can take part in the competition that could win you a prize. An unknown number of blue Easter eggs will be hidden throughout the library. Your goal is to count them and submit the right solution on the form that you can retrieve at the information desk.

Swiss Easter Traditions

Join egg tapping a little further afield in the city of Bern. The tradition on the morning of Easter Sunday can be compared to the game of conkers and while you're welcome to bring your own hard-boiled eggs along, you will also find that you can purchase plenty of painted ones on site. 

Discover the tradition of “Zwänzgerle” in Zurich. On the morning of Easter Monday, crowds of adults and children gather at Limmatquai and Rüdenplatz ready to compete. The rules of the game foresee that the adult throws 20 Rappen at a hard-boiled egg that the child holds. The aim is for the coin to stay lodged in the egg, an almost impossible task, much to the delight of the children as any coin that falls to the ground is theirs to keep.
