The Grimm brothers conquered the world with their „Children‘s and Household Tales“. The fairy tales are at home in North Hesse: this is where Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm lived for most of their lives, and collected and wrote down their fairy tales. For this reason alone, the region now calls itself the „Grimm country North Hesse“. However, there is another reason: the gentle and densely wooded low mountain region is the setting for some of the best-known of the Grimm brothers‘ fairy tales.
This book features some of the Grimm brothers‘ most wonderful classic fairy tales, imaginatively illustrated by Albert Völkl. The book will also take you on a magical journey to places where the characters from Grimm‘s fairy tales might easily still be living today.
Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm are probably the world‘s best-known German-language authors; their „Children‘s and Household Tales“ are popular all over the world. This famous collection of fairy tales was published over 200 years ago. In 2005, the UNESCO added the authors‘ personal copies, which contain numerous handwritten annotations, the so-called Kasseler Handausgabe, to its Memory of the World Register. The precious handwritten originals may be viewed in the new GRIMMWELT exhibition in Kassel. This exhibition venue examines all aspects of the Grimm brothers‘ working and private lives – from their fairy tales to their German dictionary and grammar book, and also the brothers‘ involvement in politics
