Garden parties used to be very popular in the Rococo era. They were called "fêtes galantes", because back then French was as popular as English is today. How about visiting a real Rococo garden party? See in the great mirror how crinolines and sleeves turn you into fashion-conscious Demoiselles und Messieurs. A white powdered face and a beauty spot are a must! There is also a perfumer with many different fragrances. The fan is very important: you create it yourselves and you will learn the secret language of fans and even a dance with fans. Resting on cushions you listen to stories and fairy tales and try exotic fruits from Pomona's horn of plenty while the grown-ups you have brought are listening to gallant stories in the park. And after a small concert with glass music and a glass ball juggler, they are even allowed to admire your fan dance!
Admission from 9.45 h
