Cultural tours Bergstrasse

Expe­ri­ence the diver­sity of the natu­ral and cul­tu­ral land­scape bet­ween Hei­del­berg and Darm­stadt through the life sto­ries of his­to­ri­cal Berg­strasse per­so­na­li­ties, from art, lite­ra­ture, music etc. with the Berg­strasse Cul­tu­ral Walks. Walk in their foot­s­teps through ceme­ter­ies and pretty vil­la­ges. Immerse yours­elf in the world of life in times gone by.

With an eye for the extra­or­di­nary and a love of detail, sci­en­ti­fi­cally based, detached from the stan­dard pro­gramme, you will explore with me the sights along the Berg­strasse as well as the UNESCO wealth of this fasci­na­ting region.

I rese­arch for you in archi­ves, libra­ries, estates ... and am always on the loo­kout for the icing on the cake.

Dis­co­ver the Hes­sian Berg­strasse - Darm­stadt, Alsbach-​Hähnlein and Zwin­gen­berg - (new) with my gui­ded tours.
Eng­lish tours can only be boo­ked as indi­vi­dual tours. Public cul­tu­ral walks in Ger­man only.

Alsbach-​Hähnlein -
Jewish Ceme­tery: Sights at a glance

The lar­gest Jewish rural ceme­tery in Hesse is loca­ted in Als­bach. The cul­tu­ral walks see them­sel­ves as a bridge bet­ween Jewish and Chris­tian burial cul­ture in order to achieve a bet­ter under­stan­ding and co-​operation.

Expe­ri­ence the spe­cial atmo­sphere as you walk with me through the rows of 2124 gra­ves­to­nes. From 1616 to 1948, Jews from 32 sur­roun­ding vil­la­ges were buried here, which today are loca­ted in the dis­tricts of Darmstadt-​Dieburg, Groß Gerau, Kreis Berg­straße and in Darm­stadt. Get to know the burial ground with its spe­cial fea­tures and the gra­ves­to­nes with their dif­fe­rent designs. Inter­pret sym­bols and take part in life sto­ries of important per­so­na­li­ties from Berg­strasse.

Learn inte­res­t­ing facts about the Unesco intan­gi­ble cul­tu­ral heri­tage - the Ger­man ceme­tery cul­ture - and the con­nec­tion to the Unesco World Heri­tage Site of the SchUM cities.

Alsbacher Brunnen


On the trail of Benno Elkan

The Jewish sculp­tor, who crea­ted the Knes­set Meno­rah in Jeru­sa­lem, for exam­ple, lived with his family in Als­bach from 1911-​1919. He spent some rela­xing and crea­tive years here at the foot of Als­bach Castle. Find out how family life was orga­nised here at the time and how the Elkans inte­gra­ted them­sel­ves into the vil­lage com­mu­nity. You will also dis­co­ver which works of art were crea­ted here, such as medals, sculp­tures and docu­ments.

The tour takes place in Als­bach on foot and with an exten­sion at the Alsbach-​Hähnlein Museum in Hähn­lein by bus or pri­vate car.

Only boo­ka­ble as an exclu­sive indi­vi­dual tour for indi­vi­du­als or groups.
