Review of The Cedars

The Cedars
Ranked #1 of 36 things to do in Hahndorf
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 December 2017

Guided tour of house and studio runs for 60 minutes and describes Heysen's life, family and work. I enjoyed it very much, even though I am not an art expert. I had no car, so it was a 20 minute walk from Hahndorf to the house.

Beautiful, beautiful setting. A very informative tour of the studio and the house, (thanks Barbara). We tagged along halfway through, and very grateful we could. Lots to see and admire.. A real trip back in time to a beautiful house, with so many of Hans Heysen’s detailed Australian drawings and paintings to view. And those of his daughter, Nora. You don’t need to be an artist to appreciate the ambience and soul of the house. Well worth the trip and needs and deserves everyone’s support to maintain.

We were so happy that we visited the property.
The house is in the "Arts and craft" design and is full of the paintings by Hans Heysen.
We were lucky enough to decide on the guided tour. Our guide was friendly and extremely informative about both the history of the house and the paintings as well as the life of Hans, his wife and his family.
We even saw Hans's studio -what a delight!

We are not art lovers however while in the area decided to have a look at Hans Heysen art studio at The Cedars. The guided tour is well worth the $15 per person as you get access to the art studio, gardens, Heysen house and gallery where you can wander and soak up what life was like for the Heysen family. It was well worth a look and can recommend. Cheers

Today I went on a tour of The Cedars, the home and studio of Hans Heyson a well known South Australian Artist. Our Tour Guide Jill was fantastic and there was a lot to learn about his life, his art and his family and life. The gardens are beautiful and everything on this property is authentically kept as it was when Hans Heyson was alive. When visiting Adelaide and South Australia I would recommend a visit to this amazing place
