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 :)

A great stop to indulge the creative mind. Wonderful works of art for sale here. I particularly found myself drawn to the jewellery and the sculptures. Nestled next door is the information bureau which is a very handy excuse for some who may need one.

No matter when you go to the Hahndorf Academy you can always find something of interest. The exhibitions are good, not always to my taste, but art would be boring if it were all the same. It is a great spot to find gifts overseas...More
