“Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?"
Wouldn't Grimm's fairy tales be meaningless without such incantation scenes and their repetition? They would lack structure and rhythm, tension and poetry.
The large and varied range of events on the German Fairy Tale Route also gets its special character from recurring events. Traditional, regularly held stage programmes and festivals, such as the open-air fairytale play in Bremen, Rats in Hameln or the Brothers Grimm Festival Hanau, set the pace to a certain extent and at the same time always provide surprising nuances.
Unfortunately, due to the corona pandemic, some of these fairytale highlights have disappeared - temporarily. We are grateful and confident to be able to announce more and more bright events for the year 2022 in the coming weeks.
