Nowadays the ducal town Wolgast, former residence of the dukes of Pommern-Wolgast, houses the royal burial ground of the last Pomeranian dukes in the 'St. Petri' Church. Beside the Pomerianian dukes the merchant family Homeyer and the naval architect Haack as well as the painter and romanticist Philipp Otto Runge shaped the city's history.
While the original paintings of Philipp Otto Runge are exhibited in Hamburg's art gallery the birth house in Wolgast shows Runge's life. Apart from painting he made a deciding contribution to the three-dimensional theory of colours, created play cards and wrote down fairy tales. The best known 'Vom Fischer und seiner Frau' was actually included in the collection of the Grimm Brothers.
