About the project

In our research project „German Country Houses” we investigate the lives of people in country and manor houses as well as economic and technological changes inside and outside. We look at a period of about 200 years and focus on Württemberg, Brandenburg and the Rhineland. The project is hosted by the University of Tübingen and receives financial support from the Irene and Sigurd Greven Foundation.


The virtual exhibition is also funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science as part of the Excellence Strategy, as well as by the History Association at the University of Tübingen.
