To cel­e­brate 16th-cen­tury Ger­man Re­nais­sance painter Lu­cas Cranach the Younger’s 500th birth­day, the Alice Mu­seum for Chil­dren at the

Gemälde­ga­lerie (p. 47) is host­ing an in­ter­ac­tive ex­plo­ration of his most im­por­tant works. With games, con­nec­tions to the present, and even a life-sized hut to crawl around in, Pop-Up Cranach will leave kids – and adults – in­spired. Opens 26 Septem­ber and runs un­til De­cem­ber 2015. That in­spi­ra­tion will serve you well in one of the city’s hands-on pot­tery paint­ing stu­dios. Paint Your Style (www. painty­ourstyle.de) lets kids (and adults!) de­sign and paint their own ce­ramic pieces, which will be ready for pickup in one to three days. The Königliche Porzel­lan

Man­u­fak­tur (KPM, p.38) also lets kids get crafty. On Satur­days from 11am to 1pm, the shop at the royal porce­lain man­u­fac­tory shows kids how to paint porce­lain pieces that can be fired and taken home that same day, giv­ing par­ents time to browse KPM’s exhibitions, take a break in the KPM café, or even check out the nearby flea mar­ket along Straße des 17. Juni.
