WHERE ART AND NATURE MEET

Seebüll lies close to the North Sea, amidst a unique and pristine marsh landscape along the border with Denmark. Emil Nolde felt at home here; this was his homeland. 
Nowhere else does one gain deeper insight into the life and work of this exceptional artist. Only here can one comprehend how Nolde was able to translate the tension and intensity of a moment into colour. An endless horizon, vast skies and imposing cloud formations – in the incomparable expanses of North Frisia Nolde’s art comes to life again and again, always anew, forming an entryway into an impressive art experience. Go out in search of traces. Whether on foot, by bicycle or by car: you will sense the fascination this unique, raw landscape held for Nolde.

“My homeland was like a fairy tale to me, in that flat land,
my land, with a thousand skylarks jubilantly soaring up and
down overhead, my wonderland from sea to sea…” 
(Emil Nolde)

Footpaths

All around Seebüll, through Nolde’s landscape, lead a series of footpaths: 
A footpath from the parking lot goes past Seebüllhof to the faithful reproduction of Nolde’s fishing boat. 
Or you can stroll to Hülltofter Tief, a little lake with a publicly accessible swimming area. 
The “Nolde Path” begins at the rear of the museum and leads in ca. one hour through idyllic marshland to the village of Rosenkranz, where you can stop off at the pub “Alter Deutscher Grenzkrug”. www.alter-deutscher-grenzkrug.de
