“During your next group visit to Haus der Seidenkultur (HdS) would you like to have the opportunity not only to learn more highly contrasting details about the past, present and future of the “Town like Silk and Velvet” but also to win a lottery ticket which could give you the chance to win up to 750,000 Euro each Tuesday for a whole month? “

HdS spokesperson Dieter Brenner poses the question and also supplies the answer straightaway: “Yes, visitors to our museum may just have such luck if they take advantage of the museum special offer – the Early Booking Discount.”

All those who wish to have a group guided tour around HdS this year can benefit from the Early Booking Discount. Those who make a firm booking by 13th April – i.e. before the end of the week after Easter – receive a pre-paid lottery ticket valid for one month for the “Aktion Mensch” together with the reservation confirmation. Winners are therefore guaranteed whatever. “Because each ticket sustainably improves the living conditions of persons with disabilities, children and young adolescents”, explains Antje Ditz, Member of the HdS Committee, who plays an important role in overseeing the project.

The ZDF television channel regularly reports about social projects which are supported by the lottery “Aktion Mensch”. The personalised lottery ticket will be made out in the name of the person who makes the group booking at HdS. Haus der Seidenkultur is the first museum in Germany to access lottery tickets from “Aktion Mensch” for its visitors..

Seidenkultur opens again from 10th. March

The former weaving workshop for ecclesiastical textiles in Luisenstraße 15 will be opening its doors again to visitors with a pre-booked appointment from Wednesday, 10th March.
Ditz: “Naturally we meet all the stipulations of the Corona Protection Regulations. Our visitors can be traced and the necessary social-distancing is guaranteed in the museum and in the adjoining Silk Boutique.”
