Thüringer Wald: hier entdecken Sie Thüringen


Offers for preschool children

There is a lot to discover at the palace – preschoolers are familiarized with the Heidecksburg Residence Palace and selected contents through concrete visualization, sensory experience, and in a hands-on and playful way.

How did the prince and princess, the children and servants live in the palace? Who had which duties and what did the daily routine of the princes and princesses look like?

On a tour through the banqueting halls and living quarters, the children will gain an insight into the lives and daily routines of the former residents of Heidecksburg Palace. The focus is on the children of the princely family. The original furnishings of the rooms, paintings and objects make life around 280 years ago vivid and provide information about its former inhabitants.

  • Awakening curiosity and the desire to discover the history of one's own town/region
  • To get to know the living conditions of people, especially children, of different social classes about 300 years ago, using the example of the Rudolstadt court in comparison to today's time.
  • Familiarization with the museum as an experiential space
  • To look closely, to explore and to stimulate the communicative exchange about what has been seen.
