Welcome to Worpswede

The most famous international artist associated with Worpswede was the poet Rainer Maria Rilke, who dedicated several books to this pretty Niedersachsen village. Other major names involved include Paula Modersohn-Becker, whose works can be seen at her museum in Bremen, and her husband, the painter Otto Modersohn; the future designer of Böttcherstrasse, Bernhard Hoetger; architect and painter Heinrich Vogeler; and painter Fritz Mackensen, who was the first to move here. A visit to Worpswede on a sunny day makes for an excellent day trip from Bremen.
