Wildegg Castle inspired nine master florists to create floral works of art from 6 – 15 August 2021. “Blumengeflüster” is a pop-up project by Museum Aargau in cooperation with FLOWERS TO ARTS. The exhibition is a poetic project that brings colours, scents and art into the historical rooms.
Eight rooms of the time-honoured, originally defiant, later proudly baroqueised building will be interpreted florally for ten days by master florists and teams from different regions of Switzerland.
The professionals and young talents were inspired by the place and the biographies of the residents and interpret their creations with fresh flowers. “Blumengeflüster” provides a new, sensual, sometimes surprising approach to the history and secrets of the castle.
Special tours with experts
Experience these floral interpretations on a special guided tour – a sensual journey through the history of the castle and its secrets. Four times a day, twice in the morning and twice in the afternoon, a historian and a florist together guide visitors through Wildegg Castle.
It is, of course, also possible to explore the rooms and the castle garden on your own and immerse yourself in the world of the castle and flowers. On the way, you will also meet other floral accents that the castle florist sets with flowers from the castle garden.
The Verein FLOWERS TO ARTS in cooperation with Museum Aargau is responsible for the exclusive encounter between ephemeral beauty and centuries-old walls.
