The Easter holidays are the perfect time for families to go on a nice trip with their little ones - and you don't have to go that far away.

But even if the weather in Germany is still a bit cool, there are plenty of activities on offer for the whole family.

If you haven't planned anything for the holidays yet, you can get inspiration from the following excursion tips.

Easter egg hunt: fun for young and old

The obligatory Easter egg hunt can take place wonderfully outdoors when the sun is shining.
