GRIMM WORLD Kassel; © Grafik: kadawittfeldarchitektur

Practically everybody has heard of the Brothers Grimm...

... and connects them with memories going back far into childhood. With their collection of Children’s and Household Tales, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm have made their mark on many generations. But that is not the full extent of their merits by far. They were important linguistsand are considered to be the founders of German language studies. They belonged to the Göttingen Seven, and in 1848 Jacob Grimm was a member of the National Assembly at St. Paul’s Church in Frankfurt. Their brother Ludwig Emil Grimm was a renowned painter and illustrator as well as an important chronicler of the Grimms’life and work. The GRIMM WORLD Kassel will pay worthy tribute to all these aspects.

Fabulous from A to Z

The many aspectsof the work of the Brothers Grimm will be presented in the GRIMM WORLD Kassel: valuable original exhibits, film and Sound documents, art installations, multimedia and hands-on activities promise to offer an exciting experience. For the city of Kassel, the GRIMM WORLD is one of the main cultural projects of the coming years. In future this presentation all about the Brothers Grimm will rank alongside the documenta and the UNESCO World Heritage site Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe as another attraction of international importance.

Visitors will be guided through the GRIMM WORLD with the help of entries from the Grimms’ German Dictionary. The various topic areas have titles such as FROTEUFEL (demon), BUCH (book) or DORNHECKE (hedge of thorns).

Situated on the Weinberg, the GRIMM WORLD Kassel is located at a prominent spot which was highly important in the history of the town. The building was specially designed to be a walk-in sculpture blending into the topography of the Weinberg.
