Colorful eggs, chocolate bunnies, jelly beans and Easter baskets — these are the foundation of many an Easter memory for those who grew up celebrating the holiday. While not every culture and country celebrates Easter, there are plenty of places around the world where you can enjoy the festivities even when you and your family are far from home.

It is a time of year that holds special meaning for millions, and the popularity of the holiday increases every year. While Easter traditions are fun and create lasting memories, they aren’t always easy to pull off when you are away from home. Imagine dying your Easter Eggs in a hotel bathroom! With a little planning the holiday can still be fun and memorable — even while your family is exploring a new destination.

Should you find yourself far from home, your kids won’t be disappointed by not being visited by the Easter Bunny if you check out some of the Easter celebrations and activities on this list.


If you happen to be in England during the holiday season, head to Surrey for a good, old-fashioned Easter Egg hunt with a twist. The home and gardens of Henry VIII will host the Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt until April 15. Children can search the royal grounds for gold bunnies and then turn them in for a special Lindt chocolate treat.

Should you find yourself in Germany during Easter, set aside some time to learn about the relationship between Easter and the egg. One of the most unique museum experiences imaginable is the Easter Egg Museum in Sonnenbühl, or the Osterei Museum. One of the few institutions dedicated strictly to the painted egg, this interesting attraction lets families visiting Germany get a dose of Easter joy by learning about the history of egg painting. More than 1,000 intricately designed eggs are on display, ranging from the typical chicken egg to the ostrich egg.

Disney World Orlando

Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando is a always a surefire way to guarantee the entire family enjoys their vacation, but should your visit coincide with the Easter season, the park has plenty of holiday fun in store to make your trip memorable. Disney-themed Easter baskets stuffed with goodies are available for purchase so your kids won’t feel as though they’ve missed out on any fun away from home. Protestant services and Catholic mass are held on Easter Sunday for those who wish to attend Easter religious services and special Easter meals are available at several locations throughout the park. For those staying a bit longer, head to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa until April 10, to see the Easter egg display created by talented bakers and pastry chefs who create chocolate egg masterpieces decorated with Disney themes.
