Foretaste of anniversary year 2024
in 2024, the anniversary "175 years of the Baden Revolution 1849" will be celebrated in Rastatt. As a small foretaste and to shorten the waiting time, the Stadtmuseum Rastatt is showing a cabinet exhibition in the foyer of the house. The show deals with the role of the inns in the spread of revolutionary ideas and demands.
The political inn
Here people drank, smoked, read newspapers and discussed politics: Before and during the revolution of 1848/49, the inn was not only a place for socializing. It was also a place of not inconsiderable importance for the spread of revolutionary ideas and the exchange about them.
Here, newspapers, pamphlets and other printed matter reporting on political and social developments were available in reading cabinets. Here, citizens could gather and debate with each other, protected from censorship and reprisals by police authorities.
In Rastatt, there is evidence of more than 60 innkeepers and breweries in the 1840s. Some of them sympathized more or less openly with the ideas of the revolution.
Prelude to the Revolutionary Jubilee
In a cabinet exhibition, the Stadtmuseum deals with this exciting chapter of social debate culture around 1848. The exhibition is intended as a small, historical highlight and as a prelude to the 175th anniversary of the Baden Revolution in Rastatt, which will be celebrated in 2024 with a large festival year with numerous events.
It is also a small foretaste of a large special exhibition on the Baden Revolution, which will be on display at the Stadtmuseum from mid-May 2024.
