All events can be found in the agenda.
Easter egg hunt
Saturday, 11th April 2020, 15.00
The expansive park surrounding the historic Langmatt villa offers any number of hiding places for delicious Easter eggs. The Easter bunny likes to deliver colourful chocolate eggs to the Langmatt for the children of Baden and the surrounding countryside, and has been doing so for many years now. This popular event has seen hundreds of children take part, along with their parents and grandparents. Children are cordially invited to pick up an Easter basket and look for eggs. This event takes place in all weathers. Please bring your own Easter baskets.
For children up to 8 years, per child CHF 10.
