At the beginning of the new season, we cordially invite you to the Open Monument Day with many insights into the historical, architectural and artistic development of the house. Visitors can explore the Festspielhaus and the grounds around it in a variety of ways or linger in the Kulturgarten and enjoy an ice cream.  

Lecture and guided tours  

Guided tours of the Festspielhaus for adults and children will be offered from 11 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. At 2.30 p.m. Peter Ruhnau will speak about his father, the well-known architect Walter Ruhnau, whose work was significant for the revitalisation of the grounds in the 1990s, among other things. There will also be an opportunity to learn new things about the reconstruction of the east wing and to look behind the scenes at the Festspielhaus.
