If you ever wondered who wrote the Nutcracker, or revelled in creepy fairy tales or opera, come and see this charming house where the sad but cheerful Hoffmann lived with his long suffering wife for a few years. You get a good idea of how...More

Not open too often, but if you are at all interested in the life and work of E.T.A. Hoffmann, this is a charming and informative little museum, beautifully set out and with a delightful garden at the back - well worth a visit.

You need to be fit to visit. Lots of stairs. Helpful guide who provided information in English. Nice interactive musical exhibits. Every nook and cranny filled with something, nicely thought out.
