A visit to the GRIMM WORLD Kassel is worthwhile for all kinds of visitors, whether children or senior citizens, families or school groups, experts or lay people. The exhibition appeals to all who are interested in art and language, to fairy tale tellers and Grimm fans, tourists and Kassel lovers.  

What we offer

The GRIMM WORLD Kassel cooperates with outstanding artists, with educatos for art and media as well as with cultural and social institutions. Alongside the valuable historical exhibits, there are sound and film documents, multimedia and interactive presentations and artistic installations which ensure stimulating experiences.

Guided tours: We have about 40 trained guides who can introduce you to the Grimm's life-work. An app can also accompany you on an adventure tour “Fabulous from A to Z” through about 1,200 square metres of exhibition space, also with the option of various languages and barrier-free. The "World Tour" offers children a treasure hunt and a quiz in the world of fairy tales and the language of the Brothers Grimm, which is very popular with families and others.

Frequent temporary exhibitions in the separate area covering about 330 square metres on the first floor as well as numerous special events create a rich range of opportunities for visitors to explore the WORLD of the Brothers Grimm.

A diversity of approaches to the exhibition helps all kinds of target groups and individual visitors to explore new knowledge environments.


The GRIMM WORLD Kassel builds bridges from culture and literature to the world of the general public. The mediation by means of experience is an invitation to find one’s own solutions and ways of expression, to perceive trends and changes, and to understand and assess developments.
