German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN)



The exhibition and concerts are possible thanks to a cooperation between the Vilm-Verein (Verein zur Pflege des Natur- und Kulturerbes der Insel Vilm e.V., Association to Preserve the Natural and Cultural Heritage of the Isle of Vilm) and the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation. The association, founded in 1994, aims to explore and preserve the extraordinary natural and cultural heritage of the Isle of Vilm.

The association has collected information on more than 650 painters who were active on the three islands of Rügen, Hiddensee and Vilm in the 19th and 20th centuries. This information is available online: "Malerlexikon Rügen - Vilm-Hiddensee" (Encyclopaedia of painters, in German only).

The association also maintains an archive to preserves testimonies from the long history of the Isle of Vilm and makes them available to researchers and interested parties. A brochure on Vilm provides a foray into the exciting history of the island. The association also documents rare species and informs about exceptional sightings of animals.
