A little Kästner-ing

Are you bored? Do you wish you had a closet like the one in ‘The 35th of May’ – just step inside, and when you get out you experience the craziest adventures?

While we unfortunately cannot help you with the closet, we do have some crazy adventures for you in our treasure chest of incredible stories, tricky puzzles and fun art projects!

But remember, it’s just for clever clogs, and children have to look after their parents!

Every video looks at and discusses a different drawer. We love to hear what you think about the drawers. So, we’re looking forward to your comments and thoughts!

The MuMo team is on the road in their yellow van nearly every day, getting to know new places all over Saxony! Everywhere is unique in some way or another, has its own stories or even a connection to Erich Kästner.

In this series we look back at the places we have travelled to and tell their stories. Sometimes we might even hint at upcoming destinations – we’re sure will be back on the road again soon!

P.S. Do you have a suggestion for where MuMo should visit next? Let us know:!
