Cologne artist Claus Richter loves Christmas. Not the real Christmas full of stress, shopping hysteria and family quarrels, but the magical Christmas full of lights, miracles and enchantment told in so many stories, films and advertisements. For many years, Richter has been researching the history of the holiday and regularly lectures on all the invented images that form our idea of an ideal Christmas. Some time ago, the artist began staging small "Christmas revues" himself, which have since been shown in the run-up to Christmas at various venues such as the Kölnischer Kunstverein and the Friedricianum in Kassel. This year Claus Richter will be guesting at Schloss Moyland with his latest performance. He will present a performance lasting just under an hour, combining puppet shows, Christmas stories by the fireside, jokes, contemplation and silliness to create a Christmas tale all of his own.

Cost: Admission to the Christmas Market 7.50€. Children and young people up to 16 years of age are admitted free of charge. 

Due to set-up and dismantling work of the market, the museum (castle and park) will be closed on Tue, 6 December 2022 and the park on Mon, 12 December 2022.

On Long Thursday, you can experience the castle in a different way: It becomes a stage for music, art and exchange. In a relaxed atmosphere, people meet here for a changing programme of artistic specials with music, talks, guided tours, readings, performances and more.

On 15 December 2022, the new format Open for Art? will kick off on Long Thursday. In this format, the academic volunteers of Museum Schloss Moyland will engage in a lively dialogue with the public and invite them to an exchange of ideas and opinions about art.

Cost: reduced museum admission (€ 3 per person).
