Günter Grass House
Günter Grass House

The Günter Grass Museum presents the work of the famous author - winner of the Nobel Prize for literature - who is also a draughtsman, sculptor and illustrator of his own books. The collection contains more than 1100 drawings, etchings, lithographs, water colours and manuscripts. Particularly attractive is the small courtyard and sculpture garden (opened in 2007). The permanent exhibition traces the processes which shaped such books as the well-known Tin Drum, My Century and Crabwalk. The museum houses a small library and an art shop. There are regular lectures, symposiums and readings, and there have also been exhibitions on the works of other creative geniuses who, like Grass, worked in more than one creative field such as Goethe, Hermann Hesse or Wilhelm Busch.

Hours: January - March: Tuesday-Sunday 11am - 5pm. April - December: daily 10am - 5pm.

Admission: Adults 5 €, Concessions 2 €, Children under 6 years free.
