Winter magic at the Tollwood Winter Festival

Over in Weltsalon, Tollwood’s multimedia tent focusing on social and ecological topics, visitors can enjoy entertaining cabaret evenings by Eckart, Helmut Schleich and Andreas Rebers. They can also learn more about recycling and the value of resources at numerous readings, lectures and workshops. The interactive installation rooms and discussions also see festival organisers address questions concerning values and our responsibility for life on the planet.

If visitors get hungry they can spot by the “Market of ideas” for some delicious culinary treats and German beer, or browse through the many festive stalls offering Christmas goodies like handicrafts and decorations. Throughout the festival grounds, visitors can also enjoy piano artistry from lofty heights, glowing stilt walkers, a huge bird and a funny elephant!
