Villingen-Schwenningen: The day of the open monument: behind the scenes of history

The Open Monument Day of 2019 will be titled "Modern: Umbrche in Art and Architecture". Knowledgeable citizens explain six historic sites in their historical development and current significance. The artistic and architectural upheavals are not the only ones to become obvious. The types of tours offered on September 8th are a change.

  • New perspectives: Heinrich Graf is busy with the particular architecture and history of the Church of St. Klaus brother. He recommends visitors not only to explore the unique roof structure, but also to give them the opportunity to follow their own thoughts during their visit.
  • Exciting parallels: Ingeborg Kottmann knows everything about the history of Ernst Mbs House. She recounts exciting parallels that she recently discovered in Weimar.
The MPS Recording Studio is funded, maintained and made available to the public by an association. Exciting tours of its history, which began in the 1960s, are also taking place on the open monument day.

  • Renovator well known: "We are opening a house that is still open," invites Pastor Andreas Gntter to guided tours of the Schwenninger Pauluskirche. Their story is closely related to the history of the architect Martin Elssser. He is considered a renovator of the construction of a Protestant church in southern Germany. St. Paul's Church also has another highlight: an exhibition on Protestant religious architecture will be inaugurated on September 8th. It shows the church and architecture and informs about the architect Elssser.

  • Unusual design: One of the most important places of the open monument day is certainly this year's Golden Bhl School, where Folkhard Cremer reports, while the students take guided tours of that day. The school, created in the 1960s with its individual pavilions, represents a hitherto unknown project.
  • Artistic skeleton: Pastor Odo Stober leads through the Evangelical Markuskirche. As part of a new housing scheme on the Goldenbühl, Goldenbühl architect, Fritz Eberhard, designed in 1961 a skeletal church in reinforced concrete with Kampanile, detached children's garden and parsonage. The artistic design comes from the sculptor Emil Jo Homolka from Knigsfeld.
  • His legendary: The MPS recording studio, which was also created by a club in the 1960s, also turns out to be a very special monument. Friedhelm Schulz of the Frderverein offers guided tours of the legendary Rume on the day of the open monument and beyond that date and tells the story of the studio and the company Saba.
