Very Good Day

We offer meaningful and entertaining programs for both young and old:

  • Pumpkin exhibition: At the pumpkin exhibition, our visitors can learn about the amazing variety of pumpkins: the huge Halloween pumpkins, the slender thief varieties and the small decorative pumpkins that grow in countless colors, patterns and shapes. They can learn what the large, hard-shelled gourd of pumpkins can be used for besides baking, and that pumpkin seeds are not only a popular delicacy, but also very healthy.
  • Very good games: pumpkin seeds can prove their skills in skill games!
  • Pumpkin dishes: Those interested in gastronomy can taste pumpkin dishes and oven-baked pumpkin! We are looking forward to your favorite family pumpkin recipes, even with a tasting!
