We visited the Cedars twice with visitors from overseas last year and I was surprised at the other art that Hans Heysen created. The tour of the house and the gardens was a delight. Well worth a stop if you are in the Hahndorf area.

The studio displays nice art work. Guided tour is recommended. However, we visited with 2 year old child and therefore could not attend the tour. We had to stay outside the studio. Garden around the house is well maintained and beautiful.

The tour was very informative, the art work was lovely, but several pieces have been damaged by water. Bags have to be left at the front desk, so if you have a large bag, you may want to leave it in your car.

I have always admired Hans Heysen's paintings but to visit his lovely home and studio was a special treat. Nora Heysen's studio is also open to the public. The house contains many items of original furniture and paintings.

It's quite a walk but a short taxi drive.. I'd suggest taking a taxi as it won't be too expensive and shame to miss it. The Handorf tourist office is on the main street too and they should be able to help you with a taxi.

Hi, There are 2 tours I think. One just to the studio, maybe need 30 minutes. I assume they still do a tour of the home, probably need 1.5 hrs. But it would be flexible.
