Toys from Türkiye

Nuremberg Toy Museum Hosts Toys from Türkiye

Nuremberg is famous worldwide for its medieval flair, the artist Albrecht Dürer, Nuremberg sausages and gingerbread – but the city has much more to offer, especially this summer.

The German city offers travelers several musical attractions this summer.

Music Festival ION

Early in summer, Nuremberg presents ten days of emotional concerts in magical churches, providing maximum opportunity for personal exchange and enjoyment, with musical high points and contentual depth. At the Music Festival ION, the international festival for sacred music in Nuremberg, internationally celebrated stars and creative newcomers meet music fans from near and far in the heart of the city. Founded 1951 in a spirit of reconciliation in the ruins of the city, the Music Festival ION is today a brilliant, up-to-date event and a lively meeting place in the center of Europe.

During the 72nd edition of the festival from June 23 to July 2, 2023, one can experience the a-cappella stars The Swingles, the Windsbach Boys’ Choir, the NDR Big Band, the vocal sextet Sjaella, the Audi Youth Choir Academy and the Academy of Ancient Music Berlin.

Classic Open Air

On two summer evenings, the park in Nuremberg’s Luitpoldhain is transformed into what must be the greenest concert hall in Europe. Here, at the Classic Open Airs, Nuremberg’s two largest orchestras celebrate a free-of-charge festival of classical music.

The Nuremberg State Philharmonic will kick off the event on July 30, 2023, at 8 pm. The famous conductor Joana Mallwitz will set the tone for a concert with the motto “Let’s Celebrate”, which is sure to delight the large crowd of listeners. Before the evening event, a day-time family performance at 11 am will please visitors large and small. On August 5, 2023, also at 8 pm, the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra and its new conductor Jonathan Darlington will offer a wonderful festival of sound. The concerts are especially pleasing while enjoying a picnic in the park.

Das Bardentreffen

One of the largest free-of-charge music festivals takes place at the end of July in Nuremberg: Das Bardentreffen. This open-air event, which is unparalleled in Germany, turns the Nuremberg Old Town into a tuneful sound experience from July 21 to 23, 2023.

International, national and regional bands from different genres will mix themselves musically into the current debate about cultural appropriation and musical appreciation. Ninety concerts and a program with discussions and talks with the artists around the theme “Stolen Tones” will take place on eight stages throughout the city.

In addition to music events, Nuremberg’s museums also have interesting exhibits. One of them is from Türkiye.

“Toys from Turkey” in the Toy Museum

In its current exhibit, “Toys from Turkey”, the Nuremberg Toy Museum explores the nursery treasures of Sunay Akin. The famous poet, cultural scholar and journalist from Istanbul began to create his own collection of traditional Turkish toys after visiting Nuremberg’s Toy Museum in 1989.

More than 100 selected objects are on display in the exhibit, which provide insight into daily life and culture in 20th-century Turkey.

Life in the Future at the Deutsches Museum Nuremberg

The Deutsches Museum Nuremberg focuses on our life in the future. In April, a mobility exhibit with new objects was opened in the “System City” section. Mobility plays a large role in our daily life. In the museum, new visions and alternative ideas are introduced in a new area about autonomous driving and a hands-on station about the hydrogen energy chain. Until June 18, 2023, the special exhibit “Prototypes – Worth a Try” is on display.
