Events

Here you can experience something!

EXPERIENCES are very important in neanderland. A few samples: "Night at the Museum" - that's not just a film title, but also the offer of the neanderland MUSEUM NIGHT, which night owls can experience in over 30 facilities. If you have dedicated yourself to the fine arts, you will be enthusiastic about the neanderland ART or the open studios as part of the neanderland TATORTE. The district-wide theater festival neanderland BIENNALE is extremely lively and surprising. Not to forget the neanderland HIKING WEEK around the neanderland CLIMB. But that's not all. It's best if you experience it yourself.

The neanderland HIKING WEEK is a one-week hiking event that takes place every two years around the neanderland STEIG. In addition to tours for ambitious hikers, there are also walks for older people and families with children. 

Most recently, from May 7th to 15th, 2022, hiking enthusiasts big and small were able to explore the most beautiful stretches of the neanderland STEIG, the discovery loops and many other hiking trails on more than 35 guided tours. The tours focused on the topics of mindfulness, culinary delights, encounters with animals, nature and adventure.

The next neanderland HIKING WEEK will take place in 2024.

The neanderland BIENNALE is a district-wide theater festival with a local connection, which takes place every two years as a cooperation between the district of Mettmann and the cities of Erkrath, Haan, Heiligenhaus, Hilden, Langenfeld, Mettmann, Monheim am Rhein, Ratingen, Velbert and Wülfrath. The focus is on theater productions at unusual venues throughout neanderland, often outdoors. In 2021, the neanderland BIENNALE celebrated its 10th anniversary under the title "10Places of Addiction". The subsidiary Theater+ was new and popular, opening up to other cultural genres: acrobatics, readings, concerts and, for the first time, poetry slams. Theater enthusiasts and everyone else interested in culture got their money's worth.

The next neanderland BIENNALE will take place from 19. August to 09. September 2023 instead.

The neanderland ART is a juried group exhibition in which artists from the Mettmann district present their latest works of art. In 2014 the first neanderland ART took place. Until 2012 the format was called “district art exhibition”. Every two years, neanderland ART offers space for a wide range of art genres and stylistic diversity. In the past few years, paintings, photographs, sculptures, installations and objects have been represented.

The neanderland ART 2022 will take place from August 28 to October 16, 2022 in the Stadtmuseum Langenfeld. A total of 36 very different works by 26 artists from neanderland will be shown. For the first time this year there is also a Framework Programme with two workshops, a panel discussion and a talk with artists as part of the Art & Culinary series.
