Family Sunday


27th of September 2020


Wonder and have fun with the whole family.

Sunday 27th of September, in the Fortress of Franzensfeste, there is a Sunday organized especially for families. In the big fortress there will be exciting things to discover all day long.


A small theatre opens on a table and it starts to rain. Eva Sotriffer in her shadow theatre "When it rains..." tells the story of the funny Mia and the sad Ernestine who see very different things during the rain (from the book "Weißt du, wo es Katzen und Hunde regnet", by Birgit Unterholzner, Picus-Verlag 2019). After the performance, during a workshop, there will be an opportunity to make your own shadow figure and to move it on different light sources.

The magician CHRYS MAGIC takes us on a journey to discover the world of magic. After his curious magic show for young and old, the magician himself will introduce you to the art of magic. In his magic workshop you will learn your magic tricks with which you can amaze all your friends.

During an exciting treasure hunt, you can discover the secrets and mysteries of the fort, such as the golden treasure and many others. In addition, our short open guided tours for groups of up to 10 people take place non-stop. There are 452 steps leading up to the upper fortress, from where you can enjoy a wonderful view.

The day will be accompanied musically by Michael Aster and the Werth Quartett.
