“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.

Until then and beyond, we invite you to discover little treasures in our calendar of events, in the section on fairytale destinations and, of course, on site.


A special note for guests who do not speak German:
Some of the guided tours and audiences offers or events presented here are currently only available in German,
some are offered regularly, others on demand in different languages.
In many cases, fairytale magic and fabulous seductions do not need spoken language to be properly experienced.
Let yourself be surprised or inquire directly at the address given in each case.
And please understand that for technical reasons some descriptions are shown here only in German. Thank you very much!
