Exhibition: "Rothenburg in London - Rothenburg's influence on the garden city movement"

As early as 1906 Rothenburg served as a model for the conception and construction of the garden city of Hampstead near London. Here, decent living conditions were to be created as a reaction to the undignified living conditions of workers in the cities at the time of industrialisation.

The special exhibition in the refectory of the RothenburgMuseum shows for the first time Rothenburg's role as an architectural model for the planning of the garden city Hampstead Suburb as well as for the garden city Hellerau near Dresden. Further information

Kunsthalle Würth's collection exhibition follows the pleasures that leisure time brings. Leisure activities, whether in the form of sport or play, offer not only movement but also inspiration. Their counter-images - idleness, boredom, daydreaming, letting oneself be seen or "chilling out" - are also important factors of artistic creativity as free spaces for thinking.
On display are around 200 works by 98 artists, including Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst and Tomi Ungerer. Further information

Heidelberg Castle Illuminations

Bengal lights slowly bathe Heidelberg Castle in a mysterious red glow of fire. As if the ruin were burning for yet another time in its long history. Like the last time in 1689 and 1693, when the troops of the Sun King Louis XIV burned down the castle and the city, leaving behind the now world-famous ruins.

When the glowing castle slowly fades, the second part of the spectacle begins - the brilliant fireworks over the Neckar River. In 1613, Elector Frederick V had fireworks staged to greet his newly wedded wife Elizabeth Stuart in a manner befitting her rank. This fireworks display laid the foundation for the later light shows over Heidelberg's night sky.

Tip: The Nepomuk Terrace, the banks of the Neckar River and the Philosophenweg are the best locations to admire the castle illumination from 10:15 pm.

From November 15 to December 23, in front of the historical backdrop of Bayreuth, a magical city of stalls awaits you in the glow of Advent lights, leaving hardly anything to be desired and making it the ideal destination for your group trip in the run-up to Christmas. Because on November 15, 2021, the Christkindlesmarkt will be ceremoniously opened by the Bayreuth Christmas Market between the Spitalkirche and the Old Castle. If the development of the Corona pandemic permits, the streets and squares decorated for Christmas will then finally be open again this year for strolling and marveling to one's heart's content: at the festive illumination of the over seven-kilometer-long chain of lights, which creates a warm, inviting atmosphere, and at the many goods on offer, which will make the time before Christmas even more enjoyable. The smell of gingerbread, freshly roasted almonds and hot mulled wine alone will make you want more! It goes without saying that Christmas in Bayreuth also offers an extensive cultural and musical program. And around 400 specialist stores in the pedestrian zone and in the neighboring Rotmain-Center ensure a perfect shopping experience, even until 11 p.m. at the Latenight Shopping on December 4.
