A huge number of events invite you to the Castle Road throughout the year. They awaken long-gone times, continue ancient traditions and fill historical places with life. Our calendar of events lists them - from "Master's Draught" (historical theatre) up to castle concerts, from knight tournaments to christmas markets - and shows you when it is especially worthwhile to "target" the Castle Road.

Please note: Not all event categories can be implemented as usual during this year. Please contact the event organisers directly for current measures, regulations and information before the start of the event. An overview of the generally applicable ordinances of the municipalities and districts can be found here.

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

Politics and erudition

A special exhibition in the Transylvanian Museum at Horneck Castle

For families of high social rank it was customary in past times to have themselves painted. In the portrait catalog of the Transylvanian Saxons, Julius Bielz lists in 1936 about 30 artworks that can be attributed to the Heydendorff family. 20 of them are known today. In December 2018, the Transylvanian Museum Gundelsheim received a considerable part of these family portraits on permanent loan. Now that the renovation work in Schloss Horneck has largely been completed, they could be presented to the public for the first time ever, together with other loans from private collections. The most important of those paintings that could not be shown in the exhibition can be seen together with detailed explanations on the hall flags of the exhibition.

All information about the special exhibition at the museum can be found here.

Exhibition "SpitzenART!" Museum Burg Abenberg

In the exhibition SpitzenART, eight contemporary artists present their view of the traditional craft of bobbin lace in both museums at Burg Abenberg until November 7. Thus virtuoso craft and free art touch each other. Some works were created especially for this exhibition, some suitably added. Exciting positions have thus emerged in dialogue, in juxtaposition with the bobbin lace tradition. Art and lace, tradition and modernity meet.

Museum director Kerstin Bienert, together with Hubertus Hess and Petra Naumann, invites you to a guided tour and artist talk in the exhibition SpitzenART on Wednesday, October 6. Start is at 7 pm in the bobbin lace museum.

On Wednesday, October 20, there will be another guided tour at 7 p.m. together with the Nuremberg artist Stefanie Pöllot.

Admission for guided tour including admission 3 euros. Current rules apply when visiting the exhibition (data collection, 3G, mouth, nose protection).

Art exhibition

On the occasion of the award of the Wolfram von Eschenbach Prize 2021 to Inge Gutbrod and the sponsorship award of the district of Central Franconia to Barbara Engelhard, the two visual artists present current works in the gallery of the civic hall of the city of Wolframs Eschenbach.

Inge Gutbrod creates with her objects and installations, which she produces mainly from wax, colorful luminous sculptures with an architectural character. The translucent or opaque surfaces of her art objects allow the viewer a very special perceptual experience.

Barbara Engelhard mainly makes use of the appropriation and recoding of everyday materials, which she assembles in a new context in space-related installations and pictorial objects. She creates new perspectives and allows the viewer to participate.

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.
