The town of Schwaan, located 20 km south of Rostock, along the Warnow and Beke rivers, is surrounded by meadows and a forested hilly landscape.
The unique Mecklenburg artists’ colony was established here at the end of the 19th century.
The permanent exhibition in the old water mill building is complemented by regularly alternating exhibitions. These exhibitions especially feature landscape painting, tie in with Schwaan painters and set them in a new context.
