Fairy Tale Days of Berlin (3 – 20 November) This year’s theme of Berlin’s Fairy Tale Days ‘Sleeping Beauty awakes …!’ is dedicated to the vast variety of female characters in fairy tales and stories. Queens, princesses, fairies, Valkyries, pixies, magicians, witches, maids or
farmer’s daughters – during the festival these magical female figures of literature, art and politics will be traced back and linked to today’s super women. www.maerchenland-ev.de/berliner_ maerchentage/vorschau_maerchentage.html
