International Day of Forests

Annual season opening in Paulinzella

On 21 March, the »Day of Forests« traditionally takes place. The FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations) established this day in the 1970s as a reaction to the global destruction of forests.

On or around this day, the museum in Paulinzella Monastery opens its doors to visitors again every year after the winter break (November to March). This is celebrated every year with a special exhibition in the rooms of the Paulinzella administrative building.
