Magic & Art
I am the ULRICHSPLATZ. My name sounds proudly across the expanse of the new hotel entrance. And rightly so: because I am more than just a place. I am an experience. Anyone who strolls across me enters a world full of wonders. My pride and joy is a glittering jewel: a 100 m² expanse of water that makes my soul shine. The water dances in the sunlight and its gentle lapping enchants the hearts of all who approach me. But I am not just a place of relaxation. The magic of art flows through my veins and I serve as a stage for the extraordinary objects created by Willi Leo Hengge. You can even buy these works of art and take a piece of my magic home with you. Welcome to my world, where magic & art unite and unforgettable memories are born. Here, at ULRICHSPLATZ, adventures await that make dreams come true.

About Willi Leo Hengge
In a fork of a branch I can see the future object or sculpture that the wood, the oak, will produce.I can see what I want to carve out with my chainsaws to create something special. In my workshop, I bend steel and combine it into a granite stone. I find the right wood in the wood store – an oak trunk, a slice of oak tree – and combine the materials to create an art object.
A wild conglomeration of oak wood, broken granite, steel parts and “everything” that might be needed at some point – that’s my storehouse. Surrounded by historic buildings and a lot of history, inspiration flies towards me. It is comparable to “rummaging in the attic” and has a very creative effect on me. The creativity emanates from the oak wood and spreads to me. I discover my objects as if by chance while developing a new work. While I’m working on a project, I discover many variations that lead to a different sculpture. It feels like a calling. I usually sketch out the idea as an independent future project. In the realisation of a form, there are many offshoots that have what it takes to become the next project.
A quiet moment comes to me when I remember the origin or the location of the oak tree. This moment carries words like respect or identity for me. My thoughts linger on concepts such as enduring values or preservation. I engage intensively with a found object, often at night, in order to experience its effect. The task is often found in the combination of function and artistic statement. In my sculptures, the plinth takes over the function and the form speaks. In addition to the formal language, my material language is also important in terms of the impact and expression an object can have. My most important principle is to leave things out; I often find myself screwing things in and wondering why the object puts up a fight. The result can rarely be planned and only reveals when “it” is ready through tireless trial and error. A beautiful and unique moment arises when the oak sculpture speaks to me and I can recognise that the work is finished.
The magic of the moment
Yesterday? History! Tomorrow? Uncertainty. Now is the best time! What counts, that is today, that is now, this very moment. When we have time then, to seize the moment. For what? Best for a joint photo shoot with Michaela Lankes.
My work is about two things: the way to feel and the way to translate that feeling into action.
The detail in focus
The big picture
I am a photographic globetrotter, looking for adventure and beauty everywhere. As a lover of aesthetics and with attention to detail, my work is classified as artistic photography. With my boundless energy, imagination and creativity, I capture the magic of the moment. My work is about two things: the way to feel and the way I translate that feeling into action. It is not the technique that is relevant, but the detail. I pay attention to every detail and am not satisfied until I can feel the image and see the magic in it. Through my heart and soul, I create something completely new from what is already there. Because in the amount of images that we encounter day after day, there are only a few that really reach us, that touch us, captivate us, fascinate us. That is why passion is so important: it is what gives the images honesty, direction and mood. My unmistakable signature is reflected in all the pictures, each one representing my own interpretation of things. In the ULRICHSHOF I have the absolute creative freedom for individuality.

Everything you can experience!
It’s best to book your photo shoot right from home so we can accommodate your preferred date. Since our shoots are very popular, it is sometimes difficult to accept appointments at short notice.
Cancellation: It is a great pity if an appointment is cancelled although other guests would have liked to take it. In case of cancellations within 48 hours before the appointment or no-shows without cancelling the appointment, we unfortunately have to charge 100% of the price, as far as the appointment cannot be given to someone else.
