Monuments and Sights, Museums

The Asta Nielsen House in Vitte - one of a total of four houses built by the architect Max Taut.

In addition to the island's wedding room, the Asta Nielsen House houses an exhibition on Danish silent film diva Asta Nielsen and architect Max Taut.

The house was built in 1922/23 in Vitte as a summer home for the Berlin family Richard Müller. In 1929 Richard Müller sold the vacation home to the famous Danish actress Asta Nielsen. She often spent several months of summer here on the island with her daughter and husband. Within a short time the house became a meeting place for friends and acquaintances of Asta Nielsen, e.g. Joachim Ringelnatz with his wife, Heinrich George and also Gerhart Hauptmann. When the National Socialists seized power in 1933, Asta Nielsen turned her back on Germany and left the house in 1935 (1936), complete with the entire inventory.

During the war years and after the years until 1961, about 15 families, mostly war refugees, lived in the house one after the other. Most of Asta Nielsen's furnishings disappeared during this period. Only a few pieces of furniture from her possession were preserved. Since 1962, the municipality rented the building to the teacher couple Ehmer. With the change of use as a year-round residence, renovations and alterations became necessary. For example, the fireplace was replaced by a tiled stove and a gas heating system was installed in 1995. In 1975, the Asta Nielsen House was listed as a historical monument. In 1989, the municipality acquired the house from the heirs of Asta Nielsen.

With the building vacant in May 2009 and having been vacant for many years, the building was extensively renovated inside and out in 2014/15. Since then, it houses the wedding room and an exhibition on Max Taut and Asta Nielsen.
