Needlecraft (Nadelkunst) Weikersheim

| Textile and handicraft fair | regional Fair

The "Nadelkunst" fair in Weikersheim is a unique experience for all enthusiasts of textile and handcrafted arts. Set against the picturesque backdrop of the Weikersheim Castle and its baroque garden, a diverse range of handcrafted artworks is showcased. Visitors have the opportunity to discover an exquisite selection of patchworks, fabrics, yarns, and sewing accessories, presented by numerous artists and craftsmen. The offerings span materials for sewing, crocheting, and knitting, extending to inspiring demonstrations and workshops.

The fair provides not just a marketplace for handcrafts but also an extensive accompanying program that deeply immerses into the world of needlecraft. Demonstrations, workshops, lectures, and exhibitions take place both in the scenic surroundings of the castle and throughout the town of Weikersheim. Locations such as the town church, the town hall, and other carefully chosen spots become part of this textile celebration. Weikersheim Castle, originally constructed in the 12th century as a water castle, embodies various architectural styles, having been renovated multiple times over the centuries. Today, the castle displays a striking blend of Renaissance and Baroque architecture. A highlight of Weikersheim is its baroque-style castle garden, renowned for its life-sized statues symbolizing elements, planets, and continents. It exemplifies typical baroque garden art with its strict geometric shapes and avenues. Despite the centuries that have passed since its construction, Weikersheim Castle remains excellently preserved, offering visitors an authentic glimpse into the history and art of the region. The castle features beautifully preserved Renaissance-era rooms, including a magnificent knight's hall adorned with intricately carved wood and splendid murals. During their visit, guests can wander through the castle courtyard, the orangerie, the gardener's house, and the autumnal chestnut avenue, where numerous stands with handcrafted products await them. Culinary delights are served by various stalls in the atmospheric inner courtyard of the castle. In short, the "Nadelkunst" fair in Weikersheim is a feast for the senses, seamlessly blending craftsmanship, history, and culture in a remarkable fashion.

The Needlecraft (Nadelkunst) takes place biennially, and therefore for the 5th time previsibly in September 2025 in Weikersheim.
