"Writing as in the time of Goethe"

In the historic mint cellar, visitors can explore the writing style of Goethe’s time, with original ink and goose-feather quills and you can write in a special exercise book similar to those used in 1839. Furthermore, you will gain an insight into the history of typeface and learn something about the former function of the building. This event is particularly suitable for school classes.

- for a minimum of 10 people up to a maximum of 25
- duration: about 2.5 hours
- cost: €4.00 per person
- suitable for children in their third school year and above


"Self-made Silhouettes"

Producing a silhouette of one's own portrait was a popular art in Goethe's time and in this course participants learn about the art of drawing and paper cutting. They produce their own portrait in original size, scale it down onto paper with the help of a so-called “pantograph” (also called “Storchenschnabel”) and thus produce a copy of their silhouette. This activity is also suitable for school pupils.

- for a minimum of 10 people up to a maximum of 15
- duration: about 2.5 hours
- cost: €4.00 per person
- suitable for children in their third school year and above
