On Sunday March 27, 2016, no egg is safe in Granary Square (Kornhausplatz). At 10 a.m. on Easter day, the traditional “Eiertütschete” begins. The rules of this old Bernese tradition are simple: the strongest egg wins! Technique and patience are both required.
The practice can be compared with the game of conkers as it’s the toughest eggs that win.You’re welcome to bring your own eggs along to join in the traditional fun. You will also find that you can purchase plenty of colorfully painted ones on the spot.
