There are changing exhibitions there and you cannot avoid seeing them - there is art all around and as you turn around the corner, you just can't help seeing another exposure!
The village is situated at the Weyerberg, an elevation of all of 52 metres, and at the small river Hamme. In the past, the village was primarily surrounded by the "Teufelsmoor", but there only are a couple of moor areas left today, partly being conservation area. The area otherwise is very green and flat. A paradise for hikers, cyclists and canoeists.
After the divorce, the first wife of Heinrich Vogeler, Martha Schröder, lived in the Haus im Schluh. The two half-timbered houses house a museum with works of Heinrich Vogeler, a hand weaving mill and a pension.
Also called Crazy Café. Designed by Bernhard Hoetger, built 1925 in style of expressionism. Today it's a restaurant.
Also designed by Bernhard Hoetger, playful brick building. It houses a training centre for managers today. Unfortunately, the access is forbidden, and no glimpse of the remarkable building can be caught from the drive.
Worpswede is located about 25 km northeast of the Hanseatic town of Bremen, in the northwest of Germany. The municipality Worpswede has more than 9500 inhabitants today.
This was my favorite art exhibit!!!
On that pink wall it says:
"Why Art, when there is Cake?"
Wozu Kunst, wenn es Kuchen gibt?
This question was exactly in my mind, too, since I am not too much into art myself...
Worpswede has both: art, changing exhibitions, cafés, delicious cakes, beautiful landscape - so it really is a place to enjoy!
