The Caspar David Friedrich Centre has a step-free access only to the ground floor.
The Caspar David Friedrich Centre is the meeting place of all who wish to retrace the artist’s footsteps in the town where he was born.
The Centre was opened in 2004 in the historic Soap-House and was enlarged in 2011 to cover the whole of the family’s former living quarters and business premises. It recalls the great painter and the greatest son of Greifswald.

Welcome to the Caspar David Friedrich Society in Greifswald, the famous early Romantic painter's hometown.
Founded in 1998, our Society is a non-profit-making organization that aims to promote a greater understanding and appreciation of the artist and to encourage further research into his life, his personality and his work. These aims are served in particular by the Caspar David Friedrich Centre, which our Society opened on the site of the house in which the painter was born.
We also seek to preserve the artist’s memory through the Caspar David Friedrich Prize, by guided tours and excursions to places associated with the painter and, last but not least, by lectures and public readings.
Our Society extends a warm welcome to all who feel drawn to the great Romantic painter and to his art and who wish to express their commitment to it.
