Der Erlkönig

By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, since December 2021

"Wer reitet so spät durch Nacht und Wind?"

("Who rides so late through the night and wind?")


This ride becomes an emotional contest against time not only for the father with his son in Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's poem. You're right in the middle of it, too, and can feel the story with its intensity and despair up close with VR glasses. Feel free to look around in the world (virtual reality) of the Erlkönig, maybe you will escape him!
