The building was planned by the famous architect and artist Max Bill. Here you can find interesting, small exhibitions of contemporary artists and it’s also a nice place sitting outside in the café next to the river.
Lena Müller is an artist living and working near Nuremberg, where she studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts between 2005 and 2010. The majority of her work reflects her fascination for nature and natural sciences, especially her interest in the field of microcosm and macrocosm:
„What I am doing is a kind of a philosophical circling around questions of time, space, origin, human existence, cosmos, composition and mystery.
Regarding the form, it is the experimental play with a reduced stylistic idiom, made with
different tools, materials and techniques, what is exciting for me. Finally I like to create abstracted worlds which give the viewer, and also myself during the artistic process, the freedom to develop our own thoughts and imaginations and to discover the new.“
The observatory is a fascinating place and offers very inspiring impressions. The building dates back to 1931 and it’s a special experience being there. Kind people with astronomical expertise explain the night sky and different astronomical phenomena. The visitors can look through the telescope and watch the universe. On certain dates they also offer the possibility to take pictures of the moon with a reflex camera.
In the building of the former public bath of Nuremberg a small group of people organises music concerts in the summertime. In the courtyard you can watch bands from all around the world and have a nice evening. It’s a lovable subcultural location and it’s worth a visit.
A former industrial area nowadays is a place for art and culture.
There you can find for example artist studios, exhibitions, concerts and cafés.
I like the place because of its special charm of imperfection and its experimental atmosphere.
