But that’s not all: “Our city has many offers for children, young people and families throughout the summer,” says city youth worker Christian Helms. All events, campaigns or tours can be found at

A journey back in time in the museum village of Hösseringen from 8 to 11 August for children from 10 to 14 years old
What was life like in our region 100 years ago? Where did people get their food from in the past? How did the children spend their time then? These topics are the main theme of the holiday camp “Time travel to the museum village”. During the camp, there are various offers that participants can get involved in and implement their own ideas. They will learn about various old techniques of rural culture, such as forging, making flour or baking in a wood-fired oven. Girls and boys collect and process food and prepare meals by the open fire in a historic small house. You can also implement your own small projects. You spend the night in small tents directly on the premises of the museum. The offer is free.

A tour of Germany for young people from 15 to 21 August for young people from 15 to 17 years old
If you are between 15 and 17 years old and fancy a different kind of summer vacation, you’ve come to the right place: The Baxx is exploring Germany with two minibuses. Young people decide for themselves where to go, what to see and experience during this time. The only thing that is certain is that it is heading south!
