Exhibition: "With the sword or with firm belief - Luther and the Witches"

For us, witches are simply just protagonists in fairy tales today. In the Early Modern Age, however, a incarnated fear of witches was rampant: torture and burnings unfortunately were daily fare all to often. The Medieval Criminal Museum administers to this multilayered issue and mainly puts Martin Luther in the focus.

The special exhibition to the Luther Decade also goes into the forensic and social excesses of the witch-hunt in Franconia and Rothenburg with the aid of numerous extraordinary exponates, modern museums-techniques and lively descriptions. Further information

Exhibition in the Art Gallery Vogelmann: "Female Sculptors - from Kollwitz to Genzken"

Sculpture as supposed "most unfeminine of all arts" was especially challenging for female artists. Professional female pioneers like Käthe Kollwitz or Clara Rilke-Westhoff ignored the predominant constraints and gender-ideological taboos in the beginning of the 20th century. The paved the way for the female artists of the 1920's like Mag Moll, Emy Roeder or Milly Steger.

About 40 female artists represent not only the social history of female artists, but are also a reason to meaningfully reconsider the past reception. Further information (only in German)

The Turn of the Year with the Dilsberg Nightwatchmen at Dilsberg Fortress Ruins

Since 1510 the Dilsberg Nightwatchmen have now been active. Of course the staff has changed since then, but the background has remained the same. As it used to be the Nightwatchmen wander through the alleys of Dilsberg in the night of New Year's Eve.

Since 1923 the custom of the Dilsberg Nightwatchmen at the New Year's Eve parade lives on. Every year twelve men are gathering at the gate tower. They are dressed in long coats and special hats, the "Three Peaks". Alongside this they wear halberds - cutting and thrusting weapons - and lanterns. Twelve times the Nightwatchmen's horn blows, then the Nightwatchmen sing their traditional song "Dilsberg at Night". Further information

Day of the Beer

All breweries in Bamberg come together at the Maxplatz in Bamberg's centre - an event to celebrate and taste!

In the 19th century Bamberg had a capital position in Franconia with its 65 breweries. Even today, eleven medium-sized and family-run breweries manually brew beer. This ancient art of brewing has its highlight on the Beer Day (23rd of April). Thereby, the visitors can compare and enjoy the various beer types at the Maxplatz in Bamberg. "Ungespundetes" (unplugged), pils, smoked beer, cellar beer or wheat beer - there is everything, a beer connoisseur could wish for. Further information

The Old Town becomes a single art gallery and enlivened by varied artistic activities: from most different art exhibitions, over lectures, musical performances, up to theatre shows, everything is provided. The Old Town itself, with its unique architecture, is illuminated in an imaginative, sometimes bizarre and mystical kind of way. Again, stilt walkers are out and about in the alleys and a fire-dance-show lightens the nighttime sky above Bad Wimpfen. A stroll with breaks in different places, which aren't accessible on normal days.

The citizens of Wimpfen greet their guests and "express" their invitation, by putting chairs to linger and chat in front of their houses. They invite the guest: "Let the people, let the town and the lights touch you!" This wonderful gesture is inspired by the voluntary project group "Town of 1000 chairs". Wimpfen shows itself open and says hello to its guests in a very peculiar way.

The entry into the museums is free of charge this evening. Further information
