About Hildesheim and the Domäne Marienburg
Honoured with the Unesco World Heritage label, Hildesheim seems predestined for the exploration of ancient cultural trails.
Nearby, surrounded by water and green pastures, a medieval castle has given itself the mission of building new paths in the field of cultural and aesthetic communication, research and policy - The Domäne Marienburg.
During our Travelling academy presentations and workshops, we will not only discuss rural areas, but also observe and interact with our surroundings at the Domäne. The Hof Café is the best place to sit down with colleagues, take a break or exchange thoughts and deeds in front of a warm coffee, tea and homemade cakes and pies.
