Künstlerhaus Lauenburg was founded in 1986 and is an international fellowship society of the Federal State of Schleswig-Holstein. It is a society for fine art, literature, and composition and offers emerging talents from all over the world the possibility to create new projects in an undisturbed environment and to present them to an interested public. Artists, authors and composers without any restrictions of age, origin or residence can apply. The Künstlerhaus Lauenburg is characterized by its personalized care and the close network between the fellows, as well as with the cultural scene of the metropolitan region of Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein.
Every fellow receives a monthly grant for the duration of their stay. It is also possible to raise further additional funds for material and project related publications with the professional help of the Künstlerhaus, although there is no guarantee of success.
A joint first presentation, a solo exhibition, lecture or concert and a catalogue.

The Kuenstlerhaus is situated directly on the bank of the river Elbe within the historic old town of Lauenburg. It is the southernmost town in Schleswig-Holstein, has 12,000 inhabitants and is some 50 kilometres from Hamburg, Lübeck and Schwerin. It is about 25 kilometres from Lüneburg. The town lies close to the convergence point of Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, Niedersachsen and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
The building itself was erected in the middle of the last century, received protected status as a historic monument in 1982 and, after comprehensive restoration work, gained a new lease of life as the Künstlerhaus (Artists' House). Since then, over 100 bursary holders have lived and worked there.
