Caspar David Friedrich tours

Guided tours in the footsteps of the great Romantic painter

Greifswald is the birthplace of the great Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840). Sea, ports, Gothic brick architecture and high skies - these are the motifs of his native city and the Pomeranian landscape that Friedrich immortalized in his paintings and drawings.

Next to his birthplace, today's Caspar David Friedrich Center, and the picture gallery of the Pomeranian State Museum with Friedrich's originals, many of his motifs can be found in the cityscape of Greifswald. The Caspar-David-Friedrich-Bildweg leads to the most important stations of his life and work, including his baptistery of St. Nikolai, the university, the Greifswald museum harbor and the Eldena monastery ruins.
