The Swiss chocolatier lost a final appeal battle in Germany the day before in a 12-year trademark dispute over its exclusive rights to the golden-foil wrapped, rabbit-shaped confection. Despite continued unseasonably cold temperatures in the country, organizers opened the beach for bathers in time for the last weekend of March, when Easter Sunday is expected to be colder than the previous Christmas Day had been.
