Swabian Gmünd | 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.

It is rare that we are allowed 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.
