Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: Rostock is showing a scroll by Vicke Schorler for the first time

The more than 400-year-old scroll by the Rostock grocer and artist Vicke Schorler is rarely brought to light. Now it's that time again: For the first time in twelve years, the 19-metre-long historic city view will be presented for a week.

Rostock (dpa/mv) - For the first time in twelve years, the Rostock Cultural History Museum is showing its legendary Vicke Schorler role to the public. The 444-year-old and 19-meter-long city view of Rostock is very sensitive to light due to its age and is therefore only rarely brought out, as the museum announced. The exhibit, which is considered one of the greatest cultural and historical treasures of the Hanseatic city, can be seen from June 17th to 24th. The museum is expecting a large number of visitors and asks you to be prepared for longer waiting times. There are no pre-registrations.

According to the museum, the Rostock shopkeeper and artist Vicke (Friedrich) Schorler drew on the colored city view for eight years - from 1578 to 1586. When he started, he was 18 years old. From 2011 to 2020, the scroll was extensively restored and conserved. "This should ensure the existence of the work of art for another four hundred years," said the museum.
