The brothers Jacob (1785 – 1863), Wilhelm (1786 – 1859) and Ludwig Emil Grimm (1790 – 1863) lived in house number 9 on Bellevue from 1824 – 1826. The building has survived to the present day. They lived in house number 7 on Bellevue from 1826 – 1829. Ludwig Emil Grimm, professor at the Academy of Arts as of 1832, later lived in house number 6 with his family. In 1846/47, he painted three watercolours there which depicted the view of the orangery and Karlsaue from the apartment in different seasons, and sent these to his brothers in Berlin in 1847 with the comment that “however bad or poor the drawings may be, the paintings are still reminders of summer, autumn and winter in Cassel and bring many things to mind.” The Museum of the Brothers Grimm in Kassel is housed in a grandiose building on “Schöne Aussicht”, which overlooks the Karlsaue.
