Grassi Architecture

Under the supervision of municipal architect Hubert Ritter, the Grassi Museum was built between 1925 and 1929 to plans by the architects Zweck and Voigt. Both its inner courts and the adjacent park-like Alter Johannisfriedhof (Old St John’s Cemetery) create a unique cultural attraction and a place of rest and relaxation at the eastern edge of the inner city.
