New: Grimmwelt in Kassel
As a successor of the former Museum of the Brothers Grimm in the Palais Bellevue (which was co-hosted by the Association of the Brothers Grimm), the new Kassel based exhibition house called "Grimmwelt" ("World of Grimm") has opened its gates last week. For myself, I feel a bit sad for the classical museum which was one of the most beautiful museums of literature I was aware of and which I was allowed to work for as a student. But on the other hand, I am glad that the city of Kassel, after a dormant phase reminding on the fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty ("Dornröschenschlaf"), awoke to pay highest tribute to the world famous former inhabitants Jacob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm. I haven't had the time to visit the exhibition yet but I certainly do like the walk-on-able building and the way it is embedded in the Kassel Weinberg area.
