Villa Oechsler

Located just a few miles inside the German border from Poland - and just a few hundred feet from the Baltic sea - this villa was built in 1883 by Berlin type foundry magnate Hermann Berthold.

The cartoons for the Bathing Graces mosaic on the gable above the sea-side portico were made by A. Bauer.
