The Association for the Advancement of German-French Partnership sponsors its traditional Easter market from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sunday at Westpfalzhalle (community hall) in Niederkirchen.

“Our Easter market is a very special and attractive one in the Westpfalz, which is proven by the high interest of many visitors coming from all over,” said Jürgen Feind, the association’s executive committee member. “The huge variety of items being offered also lured many Americans in previous years.”

More than 30 exhibitors display and sell their art and craft products in Niederkirchen’s community hall, which will be colorfully decorated with flowers and Easter items. They offer hand-painted eggs, handmade wooden items, Easter floristic, baskets, jewelry, silk paintings, window hangings, embroideries, tatting and turning works, teddy bears, ceramics, silhouettes and products made of natural stones.

Easter eggs, made of different techniques, might turn into popular collectors’ items.

Also, vendors from Niederkirchen’s French sister city, Grancey le Chateau, will be present to show off their items.

“Our visitors appreciate the culinary specialties we serve, especially the French food as well as selected wines from France and Germany,” Mr. Feind said.

There is coffee and cake at reasonable prices.  

Admission fee is €1. Children under 14 are admitted free.

Niederkirchen is located north of Otterberg, past Schallodenbach.
