The Ekhof Theater, in the west tower of the Friedenstein Castle, is the only theater still functioning stage machinery from the 17th century. Important actors such as Conrad Ekhof, who is known as the eponymous, and August Wilhelm Iffland, already worked at this theater. At the annual Ekhof Festival you can enjoy the historic atmosphere live.
