Puppet theater for children from 3 to 10 years
The puppet stage "Träumeland" presents a new play on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the holiday game: It's Holli's birthday, what a joy! Together with his best friend Chill, everything is prepared for the big party: there will be cake, balloons and music. But the cheeky squirrel Fritzi steals everything from under their noses. Help Holli save the birthday!

10.30 thru 12h, ZOOM Kindermuseum, main entrance
Riesenseifenblasenspaß - soap bubbles fun!

Whether it's one tiny, many or just one huge one, we want to let dazzlingly colorful soap bubbles fly through the Fürstenhof together with you! You can experiment with soap bubbles in front of the ZOOM main entrance. Do they hover for just a second, do they burst on the tip of your nose, or do they fly over the rooftops and out into the city as light as a feather? Soapy water and everything else we need for this fun is ready!

The MQ water basin in the main courtyard will be transformed into an island world by light and installation artist Martin Markeli, which visitors can explore from 14h with various floating objects.
