Panic history tour with Hanspeter Dickel

Udo Lindenberg and his home town of Gronau in Westphalia From the fifties into the new millennium Roots - intersections - touches

Hanspeter Dickel is …

  • someone who should know – who can show it: authentic, well-founded, live!
  • Companions in shared kindergarten and school days
  • Fellow dreamers in the sixties
  • Bass companion for first studio recordings with a Revox G 36
  • Long-time city archivist, freelance author and publisher
  • silent accomplice from the “thumb in the wind” to the Udo memorial in Gronau …

Artist history – music history – German history using the example of our city, the city of Udo Lindenberg’s birth and youth.

The approximately three-and-a-half-hour tour, incl. The break and opportunity for an egg liqueur naturally starts at our rock’n’pop museum – at Udo-Lindenberg-Platz 1 – in the centrally located Inselpark in Gronau.

The stations include an overview of the town’s history at the pyramid – parents’ house – kindergarten and school. First venues in the city park, then in dance halls and in the halls of Gronau. A well-behaved dance class in the wild sixties. Later from the Milchbar through the Ponybar to the Mustangs in Münster – all with music, of course. In addition, Hanspeter Dickel offers previously unseen and unheard-of things in picture and sound.

Only those who have experienced the original locations in conjunction with the corresponding Udo songs, heard contemporary witnesses and immersed themselves in the Lindenberg Ocean fed by the River Dinkel can understand from the ground up how little Matz could become a rock legend and a total work of art.

The walking tour takes about two hours, interrupted by seven cross-stops. In the “Lila Eule” (Purple Owl), which is also kept in vivid memory by Udo, further pictures and videos are then shown and enriched with very personal explanations.

- Here you can discover culture and education in your city!

KuBiG brings together culture enthusiasts and interested parties, promotes the diversity of creative forms of expression and offers a wide range of creative activities and projects, especially for children and young people, at various locations and in cooperation with a constant stream of new partners.

Under this label you will find a variety of cultural educational offers in Gronau and Epe. Whether you are a kindergarten child, a teenager, a young family or an adult – there is something for everyone here, whether in a group or as an individual.

Together, we are creating a vibrant cultural landscape that not only contributes to personal development, but also to social participation.
Become part of this movement and help make Gronau a place where culture and education go hand in hand.

The NRW state government supports the development of cultural network structures at municipal level and promotes cities, municipalities and municipal associations that work systematically on the quality of their cultural education landscape through the “Municipal Overall Concepts for Cultural Education” award. The aim is to open up opportunities for all children and young people to encounter art and culture and to develop an interest in the diversity of cultural life. The overall municipal concepts are intended to demonstrate the systematic further development of cultural education as well as a coordinated and joint approach by politics and administration in culture and education.

Gronau took part in the competition for the first time in 2022 and was able to convince the jury of the concept it had submitted with its first pitch. The Minister for Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, Ms. Ina Brandes, took the opportunity to present the award in person. The 15,000 euros in funding associated with the award will be used over the next two years for cultural education projects in the city and will help to build a strong and active cultural network.
