The Goethe-Institut presents Fairy Tale Worlds (Märchenwelten), a new exhibition celebrating the Brothers Grimm in 2012.
The world famous fairy tale collection by the Brothers Grimm was first published in 1812. The Goethe-Institut celebrates this 200th year anniversary with a worldwide, interactive exhibition for fans of fairy tales, both young and old. The fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm are presented as a part of a modern present-day literary genre. Wander into our enchanted forest, find interactive treasure chests and learn about fairy princesses, wise women, wizards, heroes, villains and other fairy tale characters.
You can learn how to perform magic, understand the language of animals and can even contribute to a new fairy tale.
The multi-media exhibition for students ages 8 through 15 travels to Goethe-Instituts and German Schools worldwide and can be seen for a limited time at the Goethe-Institut San Francisco.
