The ceramic fairy tale started in 1875 when Herman Kähler established his own workshop at Kählersbakken.
The building is pretty unique, adorned with a coat of arms, tiles, friezes depicting Nordic mythology and thistles.
This fascinating corner building was an important source of artistic inspiration for the Kählersbakken light house. It was a large extension-cum-conversion by the architect Urban Hansen Reistrup, son of one of Kähler’s major artists, Karl Hansen Reistrup.
The chimney played a major role in the operation of a ceramics workshop, where the ceramics used to be fired in wood-burning kilns.
Urbania Kählersbakken pays a beautiful tribute to our legacy and history.
