Hans Heysen's home - The Cedars

One could not visit Hahndorf without visiting Hans Heysen's home The Cedars, and we were lucky enough to arrive just moments before a tour of the old home.

It was extra ordinary with wonderful artwork by Hans or Nora (Hans' daughter) throughout every room we visited.  Unfortunately, and understandably photography is not allowed IN the house, however, it was an awesome experience to have visited the house and heard the stories of Hans, his wife Sallie and their children.  Sad stories too.





Hans' old car and his amazing 'pop top caravan'

These photos are of Hans' studio which is not far from the grand house - maybe a 2 minute walk surrounded by extra ordinary green pastures, and dotted with strange art works.
