Fairy tales and legends

The fascination of the Weser Hills

Experience the fascination of fairy tales and legends first hand in the Weserbergland at numerous open-air theatres and musicals either side of the Weser. Various events guarantee a magical culture out in the open against a historic backdrop.

The museum of fairy tales and local legends

The Deutsches Märchen- und Wesersagenmuseum, a museum devoted entirely to fairy tales and local legends in Bad Oeynhausen, invites you to take a look at the history of fairy tales and legends. At 4 p.m. on the first Friday of every month, all those aged between 5 and 99 are invited to one hour of Fairy Tale Time. Group times are also available by prior arrangement.

The German Fairy Tale Route

The German Fairy Tale Route offers a combination of art and history, leads to enchanting half-timbered houses, castles and fortresses, unites museums and art galleries, invites you to concerts and theatres, and provides a blend of traditional town life, urban atmosphere and local folklore crafts. The German Fairy Tale Route is always well worth a visit, as one fair after another lines the 600 km route. Fairy tales, sagas and legends come alive in open-air theatres, fairy tale weeks or puppet shows.
