  • Conferences

Seminars, training sessions and informative events are more popular than ever. These are occasions on which to communicate, create holistic experiences in circumstances of intense concentration and conscious relaxation. Working together, we develop personalised design possibilities. The more informed we are about the wishes of our guests, the better we are able to implement their ideas: from a communicative buffet to a bowling night, from event technology to exciting outdoor activities.

    Fairy-tale event:
    Northern Hessian is the fairyland of the famous Brothers Grimm. Inspired by this fact, we offer numerous events centred around the fairy-tale theme. For example, a regional 4-course fairy-tale specialty menu. Guests can also experience the young “Viehmännin” who used to live and work in the “Knallhütte“ and discover lots of stories, legends and tales. Before she died she recounted all of these fairy-tales to the Brothers Grimm and thus became the most important fairy-tale woman, making her contribution to world heritage.

    Through a radio drama, guests can dive into the “Knallhütte“ era dating back 200 years ago. Listen to the horse’s snorting and the whip-cracking. Experience the bustle of the tavern as you listen to the stories of Dorothea Viehmann. A fabulous pleasure for young and old.

    Or listen to the Brothers Grimm yourself:
    “Gestatten Grimm” is a staged reading for adults featuring Stefan Becker and Carlo Ghirardelli. Here you will learn about the life and work of the Brothers Grimm. Wilhelm (Stefan Becker) and Jacob (Carlo Ghirardelli) Grimm tell stories about their lives. The famous fairy-tales, the trips, their visit to Goethe, the many women, the dictionary, “Göttinger Sieben“, politics, life in Kassel – in short: you’ll hear everything about the Brothers Grimm in one hour.

    Medieval feasting:
    Come and enjoy a 7-course meal in “Landgasthaus Grischäfer”, here in Bad Emstal. It is a special culinary experience with lots of medieval informality and fun. Visit for more information. From 10 people: € 33,00 (per person) in addition to the conference flat-rate.

    Of course …
    … many other adventures such as a dinner in the forest, driving a covered wagon, bike tours or evening barbecues are possible. Talk to us! We love trying out new things for you.
