Exhibitions and Galleries

Karl Gottlieb Lappe - a nearly forgotten Poet (1773-1843). A constant exhibition in Wusterhusen, close to the beach Resort Lubmin, is located in the rectory of Wusterhusen's church. Here, the life and works of the poet Karl Lappe is documented and readings bring the poet's achievements closer. Wusterhusen is one of the stations of the "Route of North German Romanticism".

Karl Gottlieb Lappe was born as the pastor’s son on April 23, 1773 in Wusterhusen. In preparation for the study he visited the city school Wolgast, whose principal was no less a figure than Ludwig Gotthard Kosegarten (1758-1818). Kosegarten, who was a teacher, pastor, professor of history and poet, realized and supported the pupils’ talents, to which beside Karl Gottlieb Lappe also Philipp Otto Runge (1777-1810), a major Romantic painter, belonged. At the University of Greifswald, where Lappe studied theology, philology and philosophy, he became friends with Ernst Moritz Arndt (1769-1860), which persisted throughout the university years. In 1798 Lappe took over Ernst Moritz Arndt’s job as a tutor at Kosegarten’s in Altenkirchen on Rügen. From 1801 to 1817 Lappe was a teacher at the secondary school of Stralsund. For health reasons he retired to the idyllically located Pütte close to Stralsund. Lappe died on October 28 in Stralsund. His works reflect daily and political events as well as his deep love for his Pomeranian homeland.
Several of his poems were set to a tune by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1828), Franz Schubert (1797-1828) and Robert Schumann (1810-1856).

Route of North German Romanticism: Wusterhusen Parsonage – Romantic poetry
Born in the parsonage of Wusterhusen on 24 April 1773, Karl Gottlieb Lappe was the youngest son of the pastor. A Pomeranian poet of nature and homeland, he created a literary monument to the coast of the Bay of Greifswald but more particularly to his birthplace as well as the stages of his life in Wolgast and Greifswald. While attending the town school in Wolgast, he became acquainted with Philipp Otto Runge and the poet Ludwig Gotthard Kosegarten, who provided him with lasting inspiration.
