Berne egg bash

Hi.
I'm new here and in my research about Berne before we moved (Yes, I'm guilty of overanalysing!) saw that there was an annual egg bash at Easter. (See here http://www.sletoh.com/plan/Berne-guide-225429.html).
I'd like to know if anybody's actually attended and if so, is it the sort of thing I can take my kids to? I have 3 under 7.
Any responses will be greatly appreciated
Thank you!

Re: Berne egg bash

As it begins at 9 am on Easter Sunday it might be fairly safe for small children. But I think the 2 eggs are held in the hands and banged together, so it would not be suitable for small children to participate.

There is however on Easter Sunday afternoon an Easter Egg hunt in the local Zoo, Dählhözli. http://www.tierpark-bern.ch/_aktuell...taltungen.html



Sonntag, 24. April Der Osterhase im Tierpark

Von 14.00 bis 16.00 Uhr verteilt der Osterhase Eier im Vivarium und im Aussenteil, Hasengeschichten um 14.20, 15.00 und 15.40 Uhr im Vivarium

Sunday 24th April. The Easter Bunny gives away Easter Eggs, outside but in the zoo, at 14:20 and 15:00. And at 15:40 inside the Vivarium.

http://www.tierpark-bern.ch/_tiere/plan.html probably best to take the bus as parking is diabolical.

Buslinie 19 ab Hauptbahnhof (bei 'Markthalle') bis Haltstelle 'Tierpark', nach rechts in Thormannstrasse einbiegen.
Beim Waldrand steht die erste Orientierungstafel

Thank you so much Ittigen!
Your info was very useful.
I know I should have used the thank feature but it didn't feel grateful enough!
