Tag des offenen Denkmals 2021

To this year´s Open MonumentDay in September all history buffs, curious people and Malzfabrik-friends are invited again. According to the motto “appearance and reality – in history, architecture and monument preservation” fitting guided tours will take place at the Old Malthouse. In between, the whole premises can be explored when the weather is nice, and the early autumn can be enjoyed.


Appearances are deceitful, it's more illusion than reality, judging a book by its cover – many proverbs deal with the relation between illusion and reality. If magic, history films or the Berlin Castle in reconstruction, in many areas of our life we are part of a “fictitious” reality. But why do we like to be show illusions? Social Media was not the beginning of us playing with our perception. What started in ancient times, and found its heyday in the architecture of the Baroque period and carries on into our present.


Therefore, we want to investigate the illusions, delusions and originality of our monuments at the Open Monument Day 2021. The “reality” is where we will start, because without the original and the material there is neither illusion, retouching or reconstruction. Monuments can only tell stories, if there are signs of history to see on them.


in this regard Malzfabrik will tell it's very own story.


The times for guided tours and the accompanying register portal will be announced soon.


Date: September 12th 2021
