A kids and family guide to Hahndorf this September

This September, Hahndorf will celebrate their rich linage of artisan culture, over a month-long festival called Hahndorf.  Handmade. Handcrafted. Handpicked with more than 250 intimate events and experiences in and around the Main Street of the historic village.

The program is filled with bespoke experiences for all ages and tastes, and we have your guide to all the family fun for you and your kiddos to enjoy!


This experience will have the fairies dancing in your garden in no time.

A take home kit with hand selected items we know the fairies will love and then some you’ve chosen yourself will ensure the kit you take home will leave you with a truly magical, one of a kind fairy garden.

This is a wonderful chance to discover the magic of fairy gardening and a chance to enjoy setting up your garden with family or friends.

No gardening experience required as the friendly fairy whispers in the store will be able to give you all the tips and tricks to ensure your garden will be set up in the best way to invite all the fairies in.
