Knüllwald-Wallenstein | Shadow forest

Out of reality, into the world of fairy tales, always into the forest, Theater Anu sends its visitors into an adventure. Theater Anu catapults the Grimm fairy tales back to their original setting: the forest at night. In groups of max. 50 people and equipped with a lantern, visitors experience the forest with all their senses as an unsecured terrain, as a magical place where ghosts and fauns haunt and as a place where man is close to the gods.

Rarely are we given the opportunity to look into the world of our ancestors. The Brothers Grimm have kept one of these few windows into the past open for us with their collection of fairy tales for two hundred years now. Theater Anu enables visitors to Shadow Forest  directly into the world of these ancient folk tales.

Coming from Kassel, take the A 7 towards Frankfurt and take the exit onto the B 323 towards Homberg/Efze. Take the second exit at the roundabout and follow the B 323 briefly to the next roundabout, which you leave at the third exit. Then follow the L 3153, which you leave shortly before a bridge over the A 7 behind the village of Völkershain and turn onto the L 3154. Leave this road to the left in the next village and pass the Landhotel Zinn. Follow Burgstraße, which leads directly to the foot of the castle.

From Kassel, take the Dresdner Straße out of town, which soon becomes the Kasseler Straße or K 4. This leads you straight ahead to the Königs-Alm.

Shadow Forest will also take place in the event of rain (except in the event of severe weather warnings, storms, etc.). We recommend sturdy shoes. There are not always paved paths! Unfortunately, this means that the production can only be experienced with limited accessibility. Theater Anu will take care of the routing and guidance by trained staff and actors. The organiser is not liable for any injuries or damage caused by leaving the specified route or by improper clothing.
