ffers for schools


Tours and workshops for school classes from Switzerland are free of charge. For workshops, however, we do ask for a contribution towards the cost of materials.


Guided Tour

4–6 class | Lower secondary school | Upper secondary school
‘Once upon a time …’
Fairy tales belong to the great stories of cultural history spanning all eras and cultures. Precious manuscripts, books, pictures and film clips document the history and significance of the fairy tale and the diversity of its forms and traditions up to the present day. Each tour is tailored to the age of the children in the class.
Free | Duration 60 min.



For all levels
‘Let the curtain rise for the shadow theatre!’ Fairy tales in contemporary artworks, as illustrations and films: the diversity and artistic creativity of fairy tales inspire us to create new figures out of paper, which we use to present our own stories. This creative workshop is tailored to the age of the schoolchildren participating.
Materials fee per class CHF 50.- | Duration 120 min.
