PIKNIK – Open Castles Week

Step through the open gates of Transylvanian castles! Six castles open their doors for you between the 24th and 27th of May as part of the international event series entitled Private Heritage Week during PIKNIK – Open Castles Week.

Each castle awaits you with a special program, there will be activities for kids (storytelling corner, giant coloring book, treasure hunt etc.), craft activities and fairs, concerts, dance shows, exhibitions and many other activities. There will be a common event at each location as well: we invite all families to a potluck picnic, where all the goodies you bring from home will be collected on long, white tables, and then served all together.

The Castle in Transylvania Coalition joins the international event series called Private Heritage Week initiated by the European Historic Houses Association from Brussels via organizing the special event PIKNIK – Open Castles Week. The aim of the European initiative is to promote privately managed historic monuments (castles, manors, houses etc.) through opening their doors to the public.

A detailed programme is available in each separate Facebook event. See you there!
