Kirchner's view on the old station of Aschaffenburg
Across from the train station is the birthplace of E. L. Kirchner. The house in which the expressionist artist was born has been renovated in accordance with guidelines for historic monuments.
In 2013 the Verein KirchnerHAUS Aschaffenburg installed a documentation space on Kirchner’s childhood in the family’s former apartment. At the beginning of 2014 further rooms on the ground floor were rented for exhibitions, lectures, and events. The City of Aschaffenburg provides regular financial support to the Verein KirchnerHAUS Aschaffenburg.
