Having been held every two years since 2000, the panoptikum festival has become a popular event to explore the wide range of children's theatre both from Europe as well as from Bavaria. It's a place to meet theatre professionals and festival organisers from Germany and abroad and enjoy the hospitable and relaxed festival atmosphere in Nuremberg.

For those who missed the 2016 festival: our videoclip allows a glimpse at the program and here you can read the press reviews, watch the TV reports and listen to the radio report as well as the radio play "Feeling At Home" by Elena Zieser.
The selection for the next
panoptikum will start in September 2016. is an European festival for children’s theatre and covers a wide range of theatre genres (drama, music theatre, dance, puppet theatre, installations etc.) for ages 4 to 10.

panoptikum is organized by Theater Mummpitz, an independent children's theatre based at the Children's Cultural Centre "Kachelbau", where the Nuremberg Children's Museum and the municipal KinderKunstRaum also offer children's cultural activities. Since the theatre was founded in 1980 more than 50 productions have been created for children age of 4 and up. The repertoire currently comprises ten plays, most of which are mobile. In addition, Theater Mummpitz offers a varied theatre education programme and regularly takes its productions on guest performance and festival tours in Germany and abroad. In 2009 Theater Mummpitz created the Nürnberger Kulturrucksack (Nuremberg Cultural Backpack), a program for children from unprivileged Nuremberg districts.
