Event for the Baden Revolution 1848/49 in the Lobdengau Museum
In the coming year, the Lobdengau Museum will take on the events of the Baden Revolution (1848/49). Ladenburg was also affected by the unrest of this revolution. The city was a contested junction in 1849.
On June 10, 2018, at 5 pm, the theme of the literary-musical event “Swallows above the River” will be discussed. The Freiburg author and historian Ulrike Halbe-Bauer reads from her novel and the songwriter Roland Burkhart sings about the Baden Revolution in 1848 in the wine cellar of the bishops of Worms.
The Märkisches Museum is changing – museum festival
On the occasion of the 110th anniversary of the historic building of the Märkisches Museum, it says “Museum, open yourself!”. A lot of new things can be explored with free admission to the museum festival on 10 June 2018 from 2 pm to 10 pm. In the special exhibition BİZİM BERLİN 89/90, the museum opens up hitherto neglected social groups and fresh perspectives.

The bird’s eye view taken quite literally in the German Museum of Technology Berlin
Until June 24, 2018, you have the opportunity to visit the special exhibition “The carrier pigeon as a photographer” in the German Museum of Technology. As an important role model for today’s aerial photography, pigeon photography at the beginning of the 20th Century applies. Her hitherto little-known story tells the photo exhibition based on archive material. At a time when Google Maps and drone cameras were unimaginable, these shots offered a very special bird’s-eye view of the world. The idea of equipping pigeons with self-resolving miniature cameras comes from the Kronberg in Hesse and goes back to the pharmacist Julius Neubronner (1852-1932).
Experience the Botanical Garden in a new way
Two very special tours take place on Thursday and Saturday in the Botanical Garden Karlsruhe.
Dementia patients and their relatives can discover the garden with all their senses on Thursday, June 7, 2018. The expert memory trainer Anne Schneider and the ergotherapist Susanne Zedelius lead through the garden at 3 pm. Under the title “Wandering through the garden” you can experience the garden with all your senses together with your relatives and help to awaken memories.
On Saturday, June 9, 2018, families can playfully learn in the special tour “Martins Rose – What to Say Flowers” that flowers and plants often carry symbolic meaning. Embark on a journey of discovery to almost forgotten, ancient stories and traditions for families and children.
For all special tours you need to register by phone at +49 62 21 6 58 88 15.
Action weeks give insights into the work “behind the scenes”
As part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage, a joint action of the Leibniz Association’s research museums will take place from 4 June to 20 October 2018, during which the collection management and conservationists of the Deutsches Museum Munich will be looking over their shoulders and asking questions the visitor answer. Normally, their work takes place in secret, as the best place for exhibits is dark, cool places without visitors, light and protected from pest infestation. Their tasks are to manage the depots with their unique treasures, to monitor and protect historically irretrievable objects from decay. Further information can be found at www.deutsches-museum.de.
