photoblog image The once old farmer village Worpswede

The once old farmer village Worpswede

 

This originally remote farmer village dates back to its first settlements in the 13th century - where moor farmers lived and worked hard - the painters Otto Modersohn, Paula Modersohn- Becker, Hans am Ende and other artists painted the landscape and their life. There are still about eight old farmer houses, but only one farmer is still active. Now Worpswede is a village for artists and gallerists - and a tourist trap, too.

 

Many thanks for yesterday's comments, I had some problem with Firefox on my PC.

This must be a wonderful place to visit Philine. The buildings depicted are slightly reminiscent of our own Arts & Crafts movement
Philine: Interesting comment, many thanks, Chris!
Quel bel endroit ..Merci pour les explications

Very impressive old buildings. I especially like the one bottom right with the blue doors. It is good that one building still houses a farmer.
Philine: The times of peat are over. I saw some fields and meadows around Worpswede, but the soil is not as good as in our Munstershire. Many thanks, Alan!

They are certainly very substantial farm buildings, Philine
Philine: Yes, very solid, and the weather in this part of Germany can be rough. Many thanks, Lisl!

I have always been attracted to the German building style in all its forms.
Philine: These are nice words, thank you very much, Chad!
These are lovely buildings Philine. Not hard to see why it is a tourist trap!
Philine: I am not sure if the youngsters are still so fascinated by Worpswede - I saw more elder tourists. Many thanks, Bill!

When I see this, I wish that I could go there tomorrow! Maybe I can manage it in the next year...
Philine: Mein Lieblingsbild kommt morgen. Herzlichen Dank, Salima! Die Tagung im Franz-Hitze-Haus zur jüdischen Emigration und Remigration war sehr wissenschaftlich, aber auch für uns 'interesssierte Laien' sehr anregend.
Firefox updated on Sunday and I am having some problems too.
Philine: I had the help of a young man to deactivate and re-uptodate Firefox again, now all is okay. Good wishes for you, Mary!
i like those long inclined roofs, Philine. the emphasis is more on broad, horizontal space rather than straight up and vertical.
