fontane.200 – this is the motto for 2019, when the whole of Brandenburg will celebrate the 200th birthday of poet Theodor Fontane, who was born in Neuruppin. The Resort Mark Brandenburg, with its hotel and Fontane Therme spa, is the perfect place from which to start your own walks through the region. Here we present some of the top events taking place in Neuruppin.
The fontane.200/Author exhibition puts visitors right in the heart of Theodor Fontane’s worlds of writing and texts.

From 31st May to 10th June 2019, the Fontane Festival will host a wide range of events – from music to theatre, literature, art and film – in the town in which the author was born. Guests can look forward to the tried and tested, the familiar and the completely new: the 6th Fontane Poetry Project, the European Festival of Travel Literature »Off Track«, pop-up theatres around the town and lots more.
