Festival of Egyptian Culture in Germany

For our readers in Germany, please note that beginning on November 17, 2011, Frankfurt am Main will be hosting “A Festival of Egyptian Culture.” In addition to various cultural lectures, concerts, and readings, there will be a life-size and detailed replica of the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun on display. This traveling replica has already been seen by over two million visitors in Switzerland, South Korea, and Belgium, proving to be quite popular. Events will last until the end of April 2012 and will encompass 5.000 years of Egyptian history. Please read an article about the festival, from The Daily News of Egypt, by clicking here. Also be sure to visit the festival’s homepage by accessing a link here [auf Deutsch and in English].
