International Museum Day – Open Day


15 May 2022, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.


According to the motto: The Power of Museums


The workshop with Renate Felderer is about the power of imagination. There will be painting and handicrafts as the children and young people create an imaginative book. Which characters should appear in it and what do they experience? What do they look like, do they have pink hair or wear colourful trousers? Each child can tell his or her own story. Immerse yourself in the magical-mystical stories of the magician Chrys Magic (Wizard Merlin) at Franzensfeste Fortress!

During the treasure hunt and the guided tours, young and old can immerse themselves in the history of the fortress. Those who like it cosy can enjoy a brunch in the historical ambience with live music by the band Kasita Kanto.

There is much to discover and accompanied by our varied programme you can spend a special day in the fortress.
