Brothers Grimm Festival - May 10 to July 28, 2024

The Brothers Grimm Festival offers an exciting program for the whole family consisting of musicals, plays and much more. The open-air theater experience attracts more than 80,000 enthusiastic visitors to the Brothers Grimm town of Hanau every year. The program includes the emotional musical "Die Gänsemagd", which deals with the themes of growing up, forgiveness and true friendship. The play with music "Sterntaler", which deals with the hope for miracles and the power of wishing, can also be seen in the amphitheater. The third fairy tale offered by the festival is "The Puss in Boots", the well-known fairy tale that tells the story of a clever cat and a dreamy miller's son in a humorous way. Frank-Lorenz Engel is also staging the greatest love story of all time in the "Grimm Zeitgenossen" series: "Romeo and Juliet". The "Young Talents" series presents "Tschick", a moving road story based on the successful novel by Wolfgang Herrndorf about identity and friendship.
