Germany's first radio play church invites you to Federow this summer. The village church, founded as early as the 13th century, stood unused for a long time until the extraordinary idea saved it from imminent ruin. Visitors can take a seat on the plain wooden benches and listen. In the afternoon there is a children's program, in the evening there are radio plays for adults. Readings are also on the program.
Listening to stories in a church is nothing really new. But in Federow, a community of 100 souls at the entrance to the Müritz National Park, it has a special meaning. This is where Germany's first radio play church is located.
The fieldstone church, which was founded in the 13th century, stood unused for a long time until an unusual idea saved it from imminent ruin and turned it into a radio play church. By the summer of 2006, with funding from the EU LEADER+ program, the urgent renovation of the fieldstone church was completed.
In 2006, the radio play church was awarded by the nationwide initiative "Germany - Land of Ideas". In 2011, the radio play church was awarded the honorary prize of the "Foundation for the Preservation of Church Monuments in Germany". The program is produced in cooperation with the Stiftung Deutsches Rundfunkarchiv and is supported by NDR, other ARD broadcasters and numerous book, audio and theater publishers. The Hörspielkirche is a cultural partner of NDR Kultur and a cooperation partner of the Stiftung Deutsches Rundfunkarchiv.
The donations - admission is free - support the program.
