Art & Antiquities

Galleries // Antiquarian Bookshops // Museums

„The connection between history and modern live, especially in this quarter is simply great! Since 300 years there is an inspiring atmosphere that attracted the great thinkes and artistic personalities. Goethe, Schiller, Humbold, Mozart, Caspar David Friedrich, Schopenhauer … all of them lived here or were frequently visiting. The nearly forgotten painter and graphic artist Hans Körnig received artists like Dix, Baselitz, Strawalde, A.R. Penck or Peter Graf to his legendary attic-exhibitions. This architectural gem has not lost any of its attraction on creative people, as, for example, the more than twenty museums, galleries, ateliers and workshops prove.
