The Nolde Stiftung had a few renovations over the years. Of course, it's all about the expressionist painter Emil Nolde. It is really worth a trip, if you are at the German/Danish border. You begin at the Forum with his Biography and a 45 Min film, which is very good. Then you go to the Museum and look at his... More

This place is in the middle of nowhere but there are plenty of brown signs to follow, so we got there no problem. The site is beautiful, with ample parking and a wonderful, modern entrance building, completed in 2009. This houses the ticket desk, shop, cafe, work rooms and cinema. We watched the one hour film, thankfully with English subtitles... More

We wound our way past fields of potatoes and cows to Seebȕll, a tiny community just barely in Germany. Our destination was not Seebȕll proper but rather the rural home and workshop where late German Expressionist painter Émile Nolde and his wife, Ada, lived seasonally and then spent their final years after 1941, when the Nazis declared his early work...

Nice not to big museum located in the home of the painter. Very nice visitor center with a very good and informal movie on Noldes life. This gave a lot of information on both Nolde and the world around him in years of big changes in Europe and also in the local area. The house with a selection of the... More

In spite of all our effort, it was a really long, long ride till we finally got to the museum. If you are not into paintings, you can enjoy the cafe (excellent cakes, you get some sort of discount that is included in the entrance fee cost, painfully slow service) and a great garden. Plenty of spaces to enjoy the... More

Emil Nolde seems to have followed the life path of another famous painter of expressionism, that of the Norwegian Edward Much. After achieveing fame and recognition, they chose to draw away from the world, and devote themselves entirely to painting and other art forms. Nolde had a life-long partner and adoring wife, and they created this personal Garden-of-Eden in the... More

This very special painter Emil Nolde (1867-1956) created some wonderful works and colours - with his best done during his banned period by the Nazis - his home is the museum and the garden; the new building has all other functions - Nolde museun must be visited.

It was strange and wonderful to stay in the red barn of one of his paintings. The whole visit was fantastic. We drove up from Hamburg in a little Smart car when they first came out and not only enjoyed the excellent exhibition but also the brilliant colours of the wildly planted garden. I still dream of the apple cake... More

In one of the most hidden-away, backwater places in Germany you find the Nolde Museum, Stiftung. Seebüll. The museum provides interesting material about the painter, biographical as well as a film about the artist who " had to paint". The museum itself, Emil and Ada Nolde's home houses various exhibitions. Nolde was a unique artist, and it is sheer joy... More
