The world is a beautiful place” by Lawrence Ferlinghetti (1955)

Oh the world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don’t much mind
a few dead minds
in the higher places
or a bomb or two
now and then
in your upturned faces
or such other improprieties
as our Name Brand society
is prey to
with its men of distinction
and its men of extinction
and its priests
and other patrolmen
and its various segregations
and congressional investigations

Schloss Zeit (previously Burgscheidungen Castle) rises majestically above the Unstrut valley between Freyburg and Nebra. The 9th century castle is a unique example of combined baroque architecture on the north and east wings; the south and west wings have been preserved from the Renaissance period to this day. The well-kept park with the terraced garden of the grotto in the middle, based on the Thetis grotto of Versailles, framed by the Unstrut canal with the tea house in the park, is part of the garden dreams “Historical parks in Anhalt”adorned by eleven statues by the Altenburg sculptor Joseph Blühme.

From 1956 until the fall of the Berlin Wall, the palace was owned by the Eastern CDU. Since 2008 the castle has been in private ownership.

Schloss Zeit’s mission is to be an example of sustainable, social and culturally diverse coexistence and work. Together with the residents, actors from the region, impulses from Berlin and the international Blockchain community, Schloss Zeit in Laucha is to be transformed from a forgotten relic into a modern utopia.

Join us in this unique venue and let’s experience together the first edition of the Crypto Castle Symposium in what would be an unDystopic world
