Faber-Castell anniversary 250 years

A breathtaking multivision show.


A journey through the company and family history in the mantle of world events to the now internationally known, successful company Faber-Castell in the 8th generation.

The highlight of the anniversary was a 128 meter long screen which was stretched as a gigantic U in the Frankenhalle. The 45-minute multivision-show was presented on this screen, immersing guests in the history and origins of pencils, starting in the founding year of 1761.

In the evening, Anton-Wolfgang Graf von Faber-Castell invited guests to the castle festival in Stein. There, a varied stage program with live music until late into the night awaited the nearly 5,000 guests, including employees with their families and guests of honor such as Bavarian State Minister Joachim Herrmann.
