Photographer's Note

Have you ever seen the Black Forest Clinic (Die Schwarzwaldklinik), a medical drama television series that was produced between 1984 and 1988 with the original airing being from October 1985 to March 1989?

The Black Forest Clinic became a highly popular television event, reaching audiences of over 20 million viewers. 25 years since its debut, it is still highly regarded in Germany. The series had been re-broadcast several times since 1985 in many coutries worldwide.

If yes than you will recognize the Professor Brinkmann's wooden house, his movie residence.

This wooden house (the hüsli) is local history museum located in Grafenhausen-Rothaus, just few hundred meters away from the Rothaus brewery (see my previous brewery photo).

The hüsli was built in 1912 by the in Lörrach-born, later living in Berlin concert singer Helene Siegfried as a summer residence.

It’s down-drawn roof, its cozy rooms and rooms with painted ceilings and closets, the old doors and floors make the hüsli an architectural work of art. Stoves, furniture, watches, embroidery and wood carving, glass paintings, paintings, glass and porcelain are shown in an original interior.

The hüsli gives a good insight into the so-called good old days, in the lifestyle of people in the Black Forest in earlier centuries. It is a reflection of rural culture in everyday life and leisure and gives you an idea which was to be spent before the long, snowy winter, Black Forest on the often solitary farms.

Especially the hüsli also reflects the notion that one shortly after 1900 in upper middle-class, urban circles of a summer resort, the life set out in the countryside.

Don’t miss it when are you traveling around. It is open every day except Monday.
