Here you don’t only experience the fairy tale world of the Brothers Grimm from many new perspectives: The important linguistic work by Jacob and Wilhelm, which is presented in a clear descriptive way, can also be explored here. For example, the interactive swear word generator unveils the numerous coarse insults that have made their way into the German Dictionary of the Brothers Grimm – great fun not only for younger visitors.
You can also immerse yourself in the world-famous fairy tales and learn a lot of interesting facts about their origin as well as the life of the Grimms in old Kassel. Another highlight are the personal copies of the Children’s and Household Tales, which are also exhibited here. Its designation as part of the UNESCO Memory of the World Programme will be celebrated for the 15th time in 2020. At the same time, GRIMM WORLD will celebrate its 5th birthday next year – a magical double anniversary, which will be celebrated with a large special exhibition about the power of “Storytelling”.
Because so many adventures make you hungry, you can look forward to a great selection of magical delights for all taste buds in the Café-Restaurant FALADA – and in summer also outside in “Grimm’s Garden”. And as a special treat there’s the fabulous panoramic view over Kassel.
