Welcome to Ilonka’s Easter experience!
We gather around the fire to honor the nature around us and to rejoice in the coming spring and light.

In the old days, the celebration of spring and light included cleaning, spells, wake-up calls, painting egg shells and eating. All this was done to ward off evil spirits and bring good luck, health and prosperity. Welcome to Ilonka – let’s welcome spring together in the same way our ancestors did!

Suitable for the whole family, the event will feature:
– Egg shell painting
– Decorating branches and learning easter riddles
– A small slide hill
– A fire around which to dance and play, including the opportunity to buy grilled sausages
– Sensory experiences in a small atmospheric Kota hut, where you can sit back and listen to the sounds and smells of the fire
– Meet and cuddle with the lovely Huskies, including two puppy whiskers Enzo and Edgar
– Seeing the chicks, if they have already hatched, or just staring at the eggs, which will soon hatch into chicks

The Easter experience will take place from SAT 30.3. to SUN 31.3. from 11.30-16.30.
Tickets can be purchased in advance online.
20€ per person, including a hot drink (coffee, tea, cocoa or juice) (0-3 years free of charge)
