The Edvard Munch House is an old Warnemünde fisherman's house named after the Norwegian expressionist Edvard Munch, who lived in this house at Am Strom 53 in 1907/08 and spent an intense creative period.
The Edvard Munch House is one of the few remaining Warnemünde fishermen's houses, whose age can be traced back to the 17th century. Around 1906, the pilot Carl Nielsen is the owner of the house Am Strom 53. With him live the boater Albert Nielsen and the widow Catharina Holtz in the modest home. In 1918 the fisherman Albert Harms buys the house and lives there with his wife and daughter Liselotte until the end of his life. Liselotte Zander, née Harms, remained faithful to the house all her life. The last owner of the house died in 1990 at the age of 79. The Edvard Munch House is still on its historic floor plan. The original layout of the rooms is still recognizable after the elaborate restoration from 1995 to 1997. Today, in addition to an exhibition space, the house also houses two studios and apartments for artists.
