A small world of vivid experience around the Grimm fairy tale “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” opens truly magical perspectives to visitors
of all ages in the Snow White House. Together with the Bad
Wildung Town Marketing Association, the citizens have
developed and interestingly designed a special spatial concept.
The two habitats
In the first part of the room concept you can see and feel where and how the dwarfs must have lived in the small typical one-room house.
In the larger of the two rooms, visitors can see and learn where the seven dwarfs slept and ate in just one room when they came home from the mine. The table is set, as described in the fairy tale, and the seven cute little beds, three of which are bunk beds, stand against the wall.
In the other room you should be able to imagine how the dwarfs and Snow White prepared food. A small kitchen with an old stove and a table for preparing the food and all kinds of accessories and utensils can be found there.
If you go upstairs, you will find the second part of the habitat concept.
The History Room
In this room, which you enter on the upper floor just after the staircase, visitors can see, explore and experience the history of the small mining village. The room equipment consists of literature, large-screen TV with DVD and hands-on materials on the history of the place. Here visitors can converse with each other, view pictures and objects, browse amongst beautiful old books, take notes, and listen to scheduled lectures.
The Storytelling Space
In this fairytale-like room, the guests, and especially younger visitors, experience the traditional and popular way of fairytale telling and immerse themselves in a room of curious listening. Listening takes place in different ways: a storyteller reads fairy tales aloud, tells them vividly, or performs fairy tales with the puppet theatre. Visitors can hear fairy tales or actively tell stories themselves with hand puppets. The room invites you to relax in a cosy atmosphere.
The Game Room
Here fairytale figures and materials come to life. The room is mainly intended for young visitors and
children’s birthday parties. The desire for dress-up, make-up, handicrafts and painting is awakened here. The little guests should become curious and active themselves. An old clothes chest with costume parts and accessories, precious stones, painting materials and all kinds of handicrafts invite young people to invent and devise on their own. The room is deliberately at the end of the fairytale journey of discovery through the Snow White House and thus offers a very special highlight to “process” the famous fairy tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
At the end of the discovery tour through the Snow White House, you can visit the souvenir room, which contains a small selection of souvenirs from Bergfreiheit and from the Bad Wildungen fairy tale shop. Here you can browse and shop for souvenirs. In addition to pretty decorative items and gifts, this small shop also carries a selected range of regional apple products.
We leave the Snow White House and ask you to take a look at the garden. You enter and leave the Snow White House through an archway. In the front garden
there is a small apple tree that will soon bear beautiful red apples. Lovingly decorated with small green plants and colourful flowers, a bench and a small table, framed by a small garden fence,
the front garden invites you to
linger before you start on your next discovery tour.
By the way: Every second Sunday afternoon of the month, Snow White and her Seven Dwarfs are personally present in the Snow White House and look forward to meeting you.
