Showcase exhibition

Karl May's Journey to the Orient

22 June 2018 to 27 October 2019

The new showcase exhibition „Karl May’s Journey to the Orient“ will be focusing on the famous author Karl May’s one and only journey through the oriental countries right to Southeast Asia, which took him overall 18 months between the years 1899 and 1900.

Nowadays, this journey is considered to be both a turning point within Karl May’s personal life and the beginning of the period of his late work.

The showcase exhibition „Karl May’s Journey to the Orient“ will be shown in the museum building Villa Shatterhand.
