All the information about the event

In Halle's living rooms around the world

Intercultural encounters

Which music people listen most in Chile? How do Syrian sweets taste? And how many languages do people in South India speak? Starting in 2019, the Francke Foundations are inviting people on a »journey around the world through living rooms«. The project brings people from different cultures together and is a small but highly effective contribution to an approaching society. The idea is quite simple: people who were not born in Germany open their living rooms as »tour guides« and talk about themselves, their family and their country of origin. Interested travelers can announce themselves for this living room journey and in a small travel group the country of the host learn. Intercultural encounters take place in a familiar and personal atmosphere. The Germany-wide project will start in 2019 for the first time in Halle. A monthly living room trip to another country will take place.

The idea

How does the »world trip through living room« work? The association »Weltreise durch Wohnzimmer e. V.« presents the idea.

Login and registration

The living room journeys take place in a small circle. A binding registration is therefore absolutely necessary.

Step 1
Please contact our information centre (Franckeplatz 1, Haus 28). For your registration we need your contact data to inform you about the further course of the trip.

Step 2
With your registration you will receive an entrance ticket for your living room trip. The ticket also entitles you to one admission to the Francke Foundations and the special exhibition »hotel global« (2 December 2018 to 11 August 2019).

Step 3
One week before the start of your trip you will receive an e-mail from us with the address of your living room trip. On the evening of the event, your travel companion and other travellers will be waiting for you. There you will also receive your World Travel Pass, with which you can enter the living room country.
