Blumen Krämer Zurich Creates World’s Largest Daffodil Easter Egg
The city of Zurich has always celebrated Easter with great enthusiasm, but this year, the festivities have been taken up a notch by Blumen Krämer Zurich. The renowned Zurich florist has created the world’s biggest Easter egg made of flowers, a giant yellow Easter egg made of 30,000 daffodils!
The creation of this incredible floral artwork was led by Paul Fleischli, Managing Director of Blumen Krämer, and a team of dedicated helpers. In just one day, they installed the huge egg in the interior of Zurich’s Wasserkirche, where it will be on display from April 5th to April 10th, 2023. So now, as well as visiting this beautiful church in front of the Grossmünster in Zurich, to see its Giacometti stained glass windows (picture below), you can also see a stunning piece of floral art!
The imposing installation stands at 3.5 metres tall and has a diameter of 2.2 metres, with a circumference of 6.9 metres. The metal structure alone weighs 300 kg, while the daffodils weigh 700kg, making the total weight of the egg one ton! The installation fills the church with a lovely scent, creating an impressive centerpiece that visitors can enjoy.
This isn’t the first time that Paul Fleischli has broken a record with his floral creations. In 1996, he created a slightly smaller egg in Olten made out of 16,000 daffodils, which also made it into the Guinness Book of Records. Fleischli is now waiting for confirmation of the new world record for the beautiful daffodil Easter egg.
In keeping with the daffodil theme, there are also some pictures of daffodils lining the walls of the church:
Visitors can catch a glimpse of the floral egg by heading to the Wasserkirche in Zurich. The exhibit will be open to the public daily from 11 am to 6 pm from Wednesday to Saturday, 12 pm to 6 pm on Easter Sunday, and 11 am to 6 pm on Easter Monday. Admission is CHF 5 (for children 12 years and above).
As Paul Fleischli puts it, “Flowers are the smiles of the earth,” and what better way to celebrate Easter than by beholding the world’s largest Easter egg made of daffodils.
