Hofgeismar | Masquerade

The Baroque era is notorious for its lavish feasts and opulent productions in which a wide variety of arts worked together to stimulate the senses - or sometimes to deceive them.

When was the last time you were at a masquerade party? MASQUERADE cordially invites you to it! And not only that, we celebrate the end of a hunt together. The hunting party returns successfully and prepares for a lavish feast... You will receive a mask when you enter the festival grounds. Play with us! Find out what it means to be "incognito" - whether by wearing the mask yourself or by watching our artists meet, tell royal stories, succumb to temptations and expose themselves to animal powers. Dance places are waiting for you. Listen to fantastic stories. Take up the croquet mallet and chase the white deer....
Dress code: We ask all participants to dress in a festive WHITE outfit..
There are no limits to your imagination. Fancifully designed masks will be available at the entrance on site. They are already included in the admission price.

The event will also take place in case of light rain (except thunderstorms, storms etc.). We recommend sturdy shoes and rainwear. Please refrain from using umbrellas. There are not always paved paths. Unfortunately, this means that the production can only be experienced with limited accessibility. If the event has to be cancelled for weather reasons before one hour of performance time has been completed, the ticket entitles the holder to admission to another performance date of MASQUERADE, subject to availability.
