This great little place fills in a lot of the questions we had about the settlement and it's early founders. Definitely worth spending half an hour here

This is a definite place to visit while in Hahndorf. The display's were amazing and the local art work outstanding. A real credit to the town to support local & International artists. Put the Academy on your list of places to visit.

Greeted by a friendly person who kept the store open a bit longer for us. Lovely range of local hand made art/craft/stuff and priced reasonably for what it is (depending on artist, media, etc). Something for everyone. A lovely place to visit :)
