Biography

German architect and town planner Hubert Ritter studied in München and started his career in his hometown. He was then city architect in Köln (Cologne) from 1913-24. After a confrontation with Mayor Konrad Adenauer (later German chancellor) Ritter left for Leipzig to become city architect there. When he should have been re-elected in 1930, the Nazi Party rejected him for various political reasons. In 1941 Ritter was a city architect in Luxembourg and was able to protect the palace of the Grand Duke from a seizure by the Nazis. After 1945, he was forced to work in Leipzig during the Russian occupation. He then returned to München, where he mainly built hospitals.

Ritter came from a well-known Nuremberg family of artists. His grandfather was the painter and engraver Lorenz Ritter, his father was the painter Paul Ritter the Younger. His other grandfather was the psychiatrist Bernhard von Gudden, who drowned in Lake Starnberg with King Ludwig II.
