Kurdish, Spanish, Swabian, Italian, Arabic, Sign Language, Norwegian and German. A story can be told in any language, even if the storytellers are speaking two different languages. By telling stories in tandem, two languages become one tale. It doesn’t matter if you only speak one language or have only ever heard the second language in passing, or if you understand both of them. These stories will come to life for everyone!

Professional storytellers have brought many tales with them, connecting narrative, myth and motifs in ways that transcend languages. These stories keep cultures and traditions alive and even breathe new life into objects. Listen to a tale about the stone which was used to build the façade, or the story of a tiny snail. These stories, inspired by the work of Alexander and Wilhelm von Humboldt, transport us into a multitude of tales on the subject of tolerance and respect.  Every weekend, we will be telling a different story for children aged 4 and upwards, and their families – each will be told in German and one other language.
