Happy Birthday, Princess Eliza!

The forced break of all cultural events during the Corona pandemic also affected the planning of our exhibition “Princess Eliza – English Impulses for Hessen-Homburg”. It will now be opened on September 22nd in the presence of the Hessian Minister-President Volker Bouffier and the Minister for Science and Art, Angela Dorn.

The video messages of Bouffier and Dorn as well as the teaser clip of the Mainz Media Atelier (Jürgen Czwienk, Lodur Tettenborn, Rüdiger Kortz) already put you in the mood for the life of landgravine Elizabeth (1770-1840). Her work in the small state of Hessen-Homburg, especially in Homburg Castle, has left many traces. We are celebrating her 250th birthday with this webpage, which was activated exactly on the 22nd of May. Here and in the social media of the Staatliche Schlösser und Gärten Hessen under the hashtag #eliza2020 we will keep you informed about the exhibition preparations and special events.
