We take you on a journey through the exciting history and present of HELLERAU – the European Centre of the Arts. You will learn interesting facts about the extraordinary architecture of the Festspielhaus, which was built according to plans of Heinrich Tessenow as a pioneer of modern architecture of the 20th century, as well as about the origin of the house as a rhythm school, which was founded here by Émile Jaques-Dalcroze and much more. Discover with us the moving stories of the Festspielhaus, a place that attracted artists and architects from all over Europe, such as Le Corbusier, Kafka, Kokoschka, Nolde, Poelzig, Rachmaninoff and Mary Wigman and the development of the house into a true laboratory of modernity.
In addition to the guided tour, the programme for the new 2018/2019 season will be presented. We would like to take this opportunity to invite particularly deaf people to join us. Two sign language interpreters will be available on this day. We would like to exchange ideas with you for barrier-free access to the Festspielhaus Hellerau.
