FEZ@Home

If you can't come to the FEZ, we'll bring the FEZ to you!
From now on, we'll be publishing interesting, games, ideas, tips and tricks to keep you entertained and maintain the FEZ spirit. You can do them with your siblings, your parents or, in some cases, on your own.
Try them out, get involved and let us know on Facebook if you enjoyed them. We'd also be happy if you could post your own fun ideas on Facebook.
Hopefully, this way, we'll miss each other a little bit less. Have fun and see you soon in the FEZ!

Being A Child During Corona

Media use, friends and family

Dear Parents

We are currently supporting a study undertaken by the Deutsches Jugendinstitut (German Youth Institute) in Munich (DJM) and would be grateful if you could spare 15 minutes to fill it out. Due to the spread of Covid-19, everyday life for children and family has changed radically. This study, entitled "Being A Child During Corona: Media Use, Friends & Family" aims to evaluate how children's lives have changed and how they are coping. For that, we need your help! The study is aimed at parents of children aged 3 to 15 years of age. Unfortunately, the survey is currently only available in German.

Achtung, Attention, Dikkat!

As per the measures decreed by the Berlin Senate on 14th March to reduce the spread of Coronavirus, all events in the FEZ Berlin and Berlin State Academy For Music are cancelled until further notice. In addition the swimming pool is closed, all events in the Alice Museum For Children and Astrid Lindgren Stage are postponed and school project days will not take place.
