The Elves of Cologne

Die Heinzelmaennchen von Koeln

A humorous homage to the Cologne Heinzelmännchen, who did all the unpleasant work at night.

With his best-known poem, August Kopisch takes readers young and old into the bustling world of Cologne’s famous house ghosts. The Heinzelmännchen are said to have crept secretly into craftsmen’s rooms to diligently do all the work – until a curious tailor’s wife wondered who was so helpfully creeping around the house night after night.

Klaus Ensikat has captured the colourful hustle and bustle of the helping elves in many loving details and witty observations.
