The European Route of Brick Gothic and Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern have started a cooperation to offer festival visitors a unique cultural experience.
As part of this cooperation, exclusive guided tours of Brick Gothic buildings are offered before selected concerts, including the first and last concert in the festival programme. This will give visitors to the concerts first-hand experience of the Brick Gothic venues where the concerts will be held, so during the concerts they can reflect on what they have learned about the history and architecture of the buildings.
“We are delighted to announce this cooperation with the festival organisers of Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern”, says Christoph Pienkoss, the chairman of the managing board of the European Route of Brick Gothic. “It is a wonderful opportunity to convey the beauty and importance of the Brick Gothic style to a wider audience and to help them immerse themselves in the rich cultural history of the region. We hope that these guided tours will give the visitors a deeper understanding of this unique architectural heritage and that they will be fascinated by the combination of music and history”.
The guided tours will take place in the following Brick Gothic locations: Anklam (St. Mary’s Church), Bad Doberan (Doberan Minster), Bützow (Collegiate Church), Greifswald (St. Nicholas’ Church), Neubrandenburg (Concert Church), Ribnitz-Damgarten (St. Mary’s Church), Rostock (St. Nicholas’ Church), Wismar (Holy Spirit Church and St. George’s Church).
There are a total of 14 guided tours. They all begin an hour and a half before the concert starts and last one hour.
Admittance costs 3 euros per person.
