A delicate dusting of snow on the fields and meadows is the first sign that this year’s winter is on its way. This charming duo – the Girl with Sleigh and the Boy with Tree – are a sweet foretaste of what we can look forward to: the first toboggan run, long winter walks with snowball fights, building snowmen and drinks of hot chocolate afterwards. They are the perfect companions for this final season of the year and a stylish gift for winter children, young and old.
Who is there who is not familiar with the chore of having to clean our house or apartment? The house cleaning, the small and somewhat larger repairs, and all the preparations required for a celebration – a seemingly endless succession of tasks. Wouldn’t it be lovely if you didn’t have to do them all yourself? This year three gnomes with their traditional red pointed hats returned to the collection, ready to carry out their secret mission with broom and bucket, with boot or with a roll of fabric. The perfect gift for a house warming, a wedding or simply as a decoration for your own home.
Are you planning a day trip with friends, family or just for the two of you? How does a fun-filled day exploring a unique atmosphere and making lovely new discoveries sound to you? Then please come visit us at the Wendt & Kühn World of Figures. Wander through our magical world of Blossom Kinder and eleven dot angels and delight in the melodies ringing out from our many music boxes. We’re open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The grand design legacy of Wendt & Kühn includes numerous figurines depicting different nationalities and wearing regional costumes. The first four figurines were designed and made by the young student Grete Wendt and her father Albert, before the company was founded. They were a bride and groom, and a farmer and his wife, all wearing Weizacker regional dress. The focus on national dress and regional costumes provided particularly attractive opportunities for demonstrating design and painting skills. Some 90 exhibits, including numerous figurines and previously unseen design sketches, documents and photos from the private archives of Grete Wendt and Olly Wendt, née Sommer, are currently on display in the special exhibition “From Japan to Bavaria – figurines in national and regional dress” in the historic gallery of the Wendt & Kühn World in Grünhainichen. We look forward to welcoming you!
These splinter boxes are real gems. This much is apparent at first glance – and when you open them and take a second look, so to speak, you discover so much more. These painted wooden containers guard secrets, preserve memories and provide space for treasured possessions. Your first movie theater ticket, snapshots from photo booths and even kitsch holiday souvenirs that bring back so many happy memories. Small mementos we pick up and look at from time to time that conjure up memories. Some happy, some sad, but always quite personal to us.
In November 2017, the World of Wendt & Kühn was officially classified as “especially family friendly”. Our sales and exhibition area was checked out by an independent agency and passed the inspection with flying colors. The 50 criteria on which we were judged included hands-on activities suitable for children and safety precautions specific to our younger visitors – aspects which we consciously incorporated into the redesign of the World of Wendt & Kühn two years ago. The high standards we set ourselves at that time have now received official endorsement from Tourismus Marketing Gesellschaft Sachsen mbH (TMGS). With immediate effect, we will be displaying the “Familienurlaub in Sachsen” (Family Holiday in Saxony) plaque at the entry to the World of Wendt & Kühn, assuring visitors of a truly family-friendly experience.
