Advent am Schloss

Christmas is coming…
Music and activities in the castle courtyard and in the courtyard hall will ensure a pre-Christmas atmosphere at Reinbek Castle on the four Sundays in Advent this year and offer a small substitute for the traditional Christmas market, which unfortunately has to be canceled again this year due to the corona.

Every Sunday has a different motto.

Sunday, 1st Advent, 11/28/2021, 2 p.m. - 4.30 p.m. - creative and handmade

Children's art in the Hofsaal: hands-on activity from the age of 5 with the artists Ulla Schneider and Hildegund Schuster. Paintings and collages are used to create pictures, which are then projected in the courtyard on the 2nd Sunday of Advent. Christmas music is played with a formation from the city orchestra every full hour in the arcades. Mini tours around the castle are also offered.

Sunday, 2nd Advent, December 5th, 2021, 5 p.m. - 7.30 p.m. - fire and light

Santa Claus expects all large and small guests until 6 p.m. Images of the art project from the 1st Advent are projected in the courtyard and small Christmas lights can be tinkered to be plugged in. Musicians from the Sachsenwald Sound Orchestra play around in the inner courtyard
5.30 p.m. + 6.20 p.m. From 7 p.m. the fire artists Weltentor will show the whole spectrum of fire juggling and acrobatics. With background music, the fire show has a mystical touch.

Sunday, 3rd Advent, 12.12.2021, 2 p.m. - 4.30 p.m. - World of Fairy tales

Who recognizes the fairy tale?
The Westibuel Theater plays many small scenes in the castle courtyard for people to guess. In alternation with the fairytale scenes, students from the Klangperle Reinbek music school show their instrumental skills. 

Sunday, 4th Advent, December 19, 2021, 2 p.m. - 4.30 p.m. - sound of voices

Christmas music to listen to and to sing along with in the inner courtyard of the castle with the Reinbek children's choir at 2.15 p.m. and from 3.15 p.m. the Kantorei Reinbek sings under the direction of Jörg Müller. Santa Claus comes by at 2:45 p.m. The Reinbek trombone choir is right
from 4 p.m. on the festival.

The city of Reinbek is the organizer of the Advent campaigns. It agreed at an early stage by mutual agreement with the Reinbeker Gewerbebund that, as a precautionary measure, the traditional Christmas market on the 2nd weekend in Advent with its dense crowd inside and outside would also be dispensed with in 2021. However, the organizers are looking confidently to the planning for the Christmas market in 2022.

The good contact between the Reinbeker Gewerbebund and Santa Claus makes it possible for him to come to Reinbek Castle on the 2nd and 4th Advent this year as well.

The Restaurant Bringzu in the inner courtyard provides for the physical well-being with muffins, sausages, mulled wine, children's punch and hot chocolate. Free entry! Reinbek Castle is open. We continue to enjoy by far. Access to the castle courtyard and the castle will be adapted to the current corona situation. According to current regulations, 3G applies to indoor areas. You can find the current hygiene concept here.
