Auerworld Palace

Constructed in 1998, the Auerworld Palace in Auerstedt, Germany was their first “willow palace’ project, taking the efforts of 300 volunteers to build. The palace is now 10 years old - their techniques, however, are ancient. 

The way in which it was “panted” illustrated the energy potential that can be developed in a process of natural growth conducted within a community project. Marcel Kalberer worked with the group of builders and artists Sanfte Strukturen, who organized the project. The construction was an event of social value and the Palace the functioned a a catalyst for community celebrations. The full moon events, for example, have attracted over 80’000 people. The Auerworld is the first palace made with the live willow system. It has become a tourist attraction for the region between Weimar and Naumburg.
