Sunday 20th & Monday 21st April 2014

Thousands of eggs to find!

First started over 35 years ago by the Count and Countess de La Panouse for their children, the Thoiry Easter Egg Hunt has long since become an unmissable annual event for visitors.

On Sunday 20 & Monday 21 April, 2014, from 10:00 to 13:00, our visitors are invited to search the Chateau’s Gardens for 9,000 hidden chocolate eggs. And 20 special "surprise" eggs provide the lucky finders with passports to the Thoiry Chateau & Wildlife Park, giving them access for the rest of the 2014 season. Chocolate fanatics can earn even more treats by wandering through the 2.3 km of paths in our maze. In addition, at the entrance to the park use your entrance ticket to join a raffle to win an extra chocolate bunny.

Everyone has the chance to win. There is even a dedicated area for toddlers offering them hidden prizes appropriate for their age… and size.

... and the animals will join the feast!

Easter means treats for the animals as well! Our carnivores enjoy Easter eggs made from morsels of meat, and the primate’s eggs are made from frozen syrup and fruit.

This event is included in the price of admission to the park.
