Desperate Housewives in the 17th century

The"desperate housewives" of the 17th century are the Memminger tour guides Sabine Streck and Heidi Stölzle, portraying a time around 350 years in the past as "Streckin" and "Stölzlin". One is from the wealthy middle class while the other is from the poor artisan lower class. There’s certainly plenty of fuel for the fire when it comes to making the social differences clear!
Participants on this costume tour will be involved in the ups and downs of daily life, in gossip about a strict "breeding order" in the former imperial city, and so much more!

Amusing, charming, bitchy, highly informative and - not just for women!

Sugar, stucco and décolletage

Following the Thirty Years’ War, an era of Baroque joie de vivre changed life in Memmingen. Sweet confectionery, porcelain, more revealing dresses, and wigs; indulgence was the order of the day. Who became rich from the cotton trade, and were there also losers? We’ll uncover the traces and secrets of this fascinating time.

Schwäbisch vernacular - "Aheba weard’s Weihnachta" - Christmas is on the way

Many people associate Advent and Christmas with memories of bygone times. For many people, Christmas is an immersion in the familiar and a home away from home. Of course, this also includes the language of home, the vernacular. Together we want to escape the hectic of the "deceleration time" and get in the mood for the coming days with cheerful and contemplative dialect texts.

"Winter time and starry magic"

An old "recipe" from our ancestors against long and cold winter nights: Sensual pleasure in the bathhouses, conviviality in merry company as well as special events in snow and ice! These things "brightened up" everyday life and provided variety during the dark season to the citizens of the imperial city. A glance into the firmament offered stars falling from the sky, blood-red dragons and "terrifying" comets which did not bode well. But it didn’t always mean looking into the sky when the Memmingen folk saw stars...oh no!...but??? We’ll be happy to tell you all about it during this exciting tour!
