Permanent Exhibition

Mother and child look at fairy tale books in the "Folk tales" section.

GRIMMWELT adventure space

Experience fairy tale collectors and linguists Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in this fascinating world of knowledge and discovery.

Everything from fairy tales for primary school pupils to the Brothers Grimm’s working methods in the Age of Romanticism for secondary school students—the GRIMMWELT offers points of interest and reference for all age groups.

Teaching modules can be assembled individually and adjusted to comply with school curriculum requirements.


There is lots to learn, experience and discover here—including hands-on activities and exhibits you can touch. The GRIMMWELT is not a museum, but an experience space—not just for adults. We turn education into first-hand experience!

Guided tours & workshops

Guided tours and workshops can be adapted to suit the learning level, school year of the group and the school curriculum—from elementary to sixth-form level.

The workshops can only be booked in combination with a guided tour.

Accompanying material

Our workbooks are the ideal way for students to explore the exhibition and follow up the visit in class afterwards.

The class can take the audio walk tour of Kassel to round off the visit to the exhibition.

The “Tell me your (hi)story” programme provides particularly valuable support for projects on intercultural work.
