The Most Beautiful Easter Tree

A German tradition of decorating trees and bushes with Easter eggs is known as the Ostereierbaum, or Easter egg tree. 

German pensioner Volker Kraft decorates an apple tree with Easter eggs in the garden of his summer house, in the eastern German town of Saalfeld on Wednesday. Every year since 1965 Volker and his wife Christa spend up to two weeks decorating the tree with their collection of 10,000 colorful hand-painted Easter eggs in preparation for Easter celebrations.

It started in 1965 with 18 Eastern eggs

350 Easter eggs on the tree in 1994

The number of Easter eggs hung by the tree’s branches grew every year,and  it reached an incredible 10.000 eggs.

Kraft started with plastic eggs decades ago, but later switched to real eggs
