Venue: Kleindorf-art is located in an off-the-beaten-path village approximately 50 minutes NW of Berlin . Our rural guesthouse / artist retreat offers artists the chance to kick back and reconnect with all things natural. The protected layout of the inner courtyard of this 19th century farm, situated directly on the Havel River, gives an intimate contact with art and nature as they harmonize with one another. The surrounding countryside with long tree-lined roads and half-timbered houses sometimes appears to be left behind from the 21st century.

Fee: The cost of a self-funded residency with space galore costs €350 per week and includes a private room and shared bath with use of the kitchen and other common area facilities. Food and beverages are extra. Monthly rates available upon request.
