Nestled among the forest along a creak filled with ducks in Kildonan Park – Winnipeg Manitoba
The famous German fairy tale of Hansel & Gretel by The Brothers Grimm is illustrated in the Witch’s Hut. It tells the tale of 2 children losing their way in the forest, finding a witch’s hut built of gingerbread and candies. Hansel is locked up, while Gretel is put to work for the witch. Eventually the children escape her evil grasp.
Kildonan’s witches hut was officially opened in October 1970 and has been open ever since during the summer months. It’s also a popular site for photographers and the Fairy Tales Festival.
Note: also in the park is the famous Rainbow Stage, an outdoor theatre venue.
