At the "Cultural Picnic on the Peace Route" on Sunday, 18 June 2023, you can experience a special cultural format at the historic Haus Marck in Tecklenburg on the occasion of the 375th anniversary of the Peace of Westphalia! Haus Marck played a key role in the Peace of Westphalia as a place of negotiation. The house is located below the town of Tecklenburg in the immediate vicinity of the Teutoburg Forest along the Peace Route.
At the large cultural outdoor picnic in front of a historical backdrop, you can experience a variety of regional artists live during your picnic. The cultural programme includes music, theatre and performances. The event takes place on a large meadow with adjacent moats and a view of the moated castle. The cultural picnic is rounded off with a guided tour of "Haus Marck - behind the scenes" (A) or "Haus Marck and the Peace of Westphalia" (B). You can also book one of the two guided tours (A/B) with your admission ticket to the event.
A table is provided for picnics , inviting you to enjoy a convivial get-together. The setting (tables & benches) for the picnic on the meadow will be provided on site.
