Casa Gay (Station 5 Rundgang Hildesheimer)

Description

"Our new apartment is a dream..." (1)

Behind the house is a large garden, the care of which is close to the hearts of Silvia and Wolfgang Hildesheimer:

"When I rubbed dried marjoram into a meat dish (spezzatini alla Christa) this morning, it occurred to me that I had not yet sent you the promised basil. That will be made up for tomorrow. This year's harvest was satisfactory, marjoram went straight, sage bad. This autumn we had the double load of manure sprinkled on the beds." (2)
