Kräuterkunde einst und heute

Aromas, colors, formations, and the divine or demonic powers of plants. This guided tour will take you back in time to the medieval world, a time when humans remained in harmony with nature. Witnesses of that era like Walahfried Strabo and Hildegard von Bingen will recount tales of it. How much is known today about the healing power of ancient monastic herbs and wild plants? How were they grown, cared for and harvested? How are they linked to a sustainable future for the exhausted Black Forest?

“Kräuterkunde einst und heute” is organized on the occasion of the Ornamenta 2024 Lust Programme, corresponding to the theme Zum Eros. All Ornamenta Lust programmes are mainly German spoken but you are welcome to join.
