What are the Myth Days?

The aim of the Hann. Münden Myth Days is to create a platform for the vivid experience of fairytales and legends. These are on everyone's lips, because the fascination for the strange still slumbers within us: fantastic novels, films and series inspire millions of people every day. The interest in mythological figures and mythical creatures is still unbroken today and is constantly finding its way into modern pop culture.

Despite the continuing popularity of such media, knowledge of the cultural origins of these traditional motifs is fading in the general consciousness. Located on the German Fairy Tale Route, Hann. Münden is ideally suited to bring the little-known treasure trove of legends from the German-speaking world (and of course beyond) closer to a broad public within the catchment area of the large cities of Kassel and Göttingen.

In the first year, we would like to make this format known regionally with a spectacular exhibition and events with selected artists. In the long term, the Myth Days are to be firmly established as a supra-regional cultural event in the region.
