Heckel house Döbeln

Erich Heckel, the artist, expressionist and co-founder of the “Brücke” (“bridge”) artists’ association, was born on 31 July 1883 in the house located at 15 Niedermarkt. 
Döbeln Kreissparkasse owns the building and therefore feels particular responsibility towards this valuable legacy. Some of Heckel’s most outstanding works are on display in the  Heckel House’s architecturally inspiring rooms. Döbeln town council, the Kleine Galerie (Small Gallery) and the Friends of Heckel are also strongly committed to its cultural heritage.
