Kinderfest at Gartenschau

A guest this time is "The Crazy Professor". Chemical experiments, physical experiments, biological miracles? Not so much ... What Professor Dr. Johannes D. Tiefenthal shows, is more likely to settle the para-sciences. And when he starts on stage, one thing is absolutely NOT safe: the audience. So buckle up, put on the goggles and let yourself be amazed. Unicycling, juggling and much more artistic, there is the children's interactive circus Pepperoni. Fun is guaranteed at the various performances, including the dance school butcher.  Lauterstraße 51
