The “Krokoseum” gives children between 6 and 12 years of age plenty of room to realise their individual ideas.

Each afternoon on weekdays alternating hands-on programmes take place. The Krokoseum team invites guests and professionals such as writers, artists or craftsmen to help shape the cultural, museum, art and media programmes on offer. The Francke Foundations’ Wunderkammer and Historic Library feature regularly on the programme. All daily programmes apply throughout the year and are free of charge.

Cook as in Francke’s time, healthy treats on a fine table, music and recitation. A cultural eating and dining experience for children to enjoy.
The cultural “free table” for children is part of the tradition founded by Francke and connects several issues: dissemination of knowledge and experience in the field of healthy nutrition, decorating the table and trying out recipes. Here aspects such as community, acceptance and conveying a culture of eating are placed at the centre of attention.

Friday and Saturday

Friday 14:30–17:30 and Saturday 10.30–17.30 | Children’s birthday parties (reservation required)

Children celebrating their birthday and their guests aged between 6 and 12 await a very special experience in the Krokoseum of the Historic Orphanage. Around the themes “Ghosts, fairy tales, pirates and knights” many exciting things can be discovered. After a brief introduction to the history of the house, a treasure hunt takes place. Next the children are feasted to a festively decorated coffee table before heading for the artist’s workshop to build, tinker and construct. Small games conclude the birthday party.
The fee is 60 euros (for up to 10 children and 3 adults). The catering is the responsibility of the parents.


10.00–12.00 | Brunch for families: Shared breakfast for fathers with children. Everyone brings something delicious.
