Composition of the alpine slide rockaria, Svetlogorsk (E.T.W. Hoffmann)

The composition of the rockery alpine slide is a small open-air museum, where a monument and sculptures dedicated to the work of Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann are located.

The composition is based on the plots of fairy tales by the German writer, composer, artist and lawyer of the Romantic era, as well as a fellow countryman of all Konigsberzhets (and now Kaliningrad residents) E.T.A. Hoffman, who was born in Konigsberg on January 24, 1776 in a house near the lower castle Lake (now Lower Pond in Kaliningrad) on French Street.

Hoffman glorified the region as one of the greatest literary and musical geniuses of the 19th century.

In the composition of the rockery are notable:

- monument to Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann;

- sculpture "by E.T.A. Hoffman. The duality of the inner world", works by Sergey Nikolaevich Usachev.

The theme of the double was one of the most important in the work of Ernest Hoffmann, and the writer himself was a vivid example of the manifestation of duality, since at the same time he was a disciplined Prussian lawyer and a creator with unlimited imagination. His creative principle was in contradiction with the essence of the Prussian official.

Also in the Svetlogorsk rockery composition, the plots and heroes of some of Hoffmann's philosophical fairy tales are presented, such as:

- "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King" - the girl Marie, the Nutcracker, the Mouse King;

- "The Golden Pot" - the amorous student Anselm and the Golden Snakes;

- "The Entail" - the mysterious butler Daniel;

- "Little Tsakhes, nicknamed Tsennober" - insidious Tsakhes and economic Candida.

All sculptures of fairy-tale heroes of the composition are original works of the Kaliningrad Master.

Access to the composition of the Alpine slide is free (free).

The composition of the rockery Alpine slide is located in Svetlogorsk, at Gorky Street / Hoffman Lane, next to the 3-star guest house "Storyteller's house", occupying a half-timbered building, with an interior decorated based on Hoffman's work. Link to the guest house

Near the rockery there is a model of medieval Konigsberg, consisting of reduced copies of the architectural objects of Konigsberg in the first half of the 16th century. Learn more about the layout...
