Guided tour through the artists’ village of Worpswede
In the middle of the Teufelsmoor (Devils Moor) lies the village of Worpswede. Here the farmers of former times survived only with hard work. At the end of the 19th century artists discovered the moor landscape and rural life for themselves. To this day painters, photographers, sculptors and craftsmen live and work in Worpswede.
After our tour you will know how the first settlers wrested land from the Teufelsmoor, why the painter Fritz Mackensen was fascinated by Worpswede, where you can get married surrounded by furniture created by Heinrich Vogeler and how Clara Westhoff and Paula Modersohn-Becker escaped a fine.
