A nice little museaum in the villa by famed German writer and literature Nobel laureate Gerhart Hauptmann, where he also died in 1946. Unfortunately there is little left of the furniture as the house had different uses before being transformed into a museum after the 1990ies. But there are quite a few memorabilia as well as drawings and paintings.

The view of the Karkonosze Mtns is a breath taking there.
The parking accros the street from villa is huge and free. A little hike from the street level to the villa is pleasant. Inside a lot of history about Hauptmann, some very heart warming. We came unprepared about this place (and Hauptmann), but came out educated and wanting to explore more. One thing we did another day when travel to Krzeszow Abby, we add some small distance to go to Chelmek Slaski and see 12 Apostols. It is a row of original townhouses of weavers from 1705. It was Hauptmann play "Weavers" about local uprising that inspired us to visit this place. It was just great.

Amazing House beautifully located with great history. It’s worth to get there and spend some time with a piece of literature, music or romance! Hauptmann House is surrounded with beautiful scenery and great mountain view.. If you wish to have a perfect wedding ceremony, this is the place to start a new chapter of your life….

Though Gerhart Hauptmann also wrote novels, he is best known for his plays, which started with "Sonnenaufgang" 1889, a starkly realistic contemporary drama, that made him famous overnight. Other plays such as "Die Webern," which compassionately dealt with the revolt of the Silesian Weavers in 1844. Another well-known play was "Fuhrmann Henschel,"showing the deterioration of a worker's life. He wrote many other plays, novels, etc and among countless awards, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1912. His compassionate and realistic portrayals of the working class almost made him very popular in the Soviet Union. He built this house in 1904 and lived in it until he died in 1946, two days after the expulsion order from the Polish authorities, who decreed all Germans to be expelled. His popularity was such, that the Russians arranged for a special funeral train to take his body from then "Agnetendorf" (now a suburb of Hirschberg/Jelenia Gora) to his final resting place on the island of Hiddensee, next to Ruegen in the Baltic. The house is wonderfully decorated with paintings illustrating some of his plays and other literary works.

I had never heard of Gerhart Hauptmann (the Nobel Prize-winning novelist) before, and I imagine the same is true of most native English speakers. Presumably if you are already a big fan then you would find the museum rather more interesting than I did.

If you have nothing better to do - and if you are spending more than a day or two in Jelenia Gora, this is quite possibly the case - you could do a lot worse than visit this museum. The entrance charge was minimal. I found some of the exhibits (and the mural) reasonably interesting, but most of the labels and texts are in Polish and German, no English, which as the subject of the museum is a German writer is not unreasonable. If you are not fluent in either of these languages I strongly recommend borrowing one of the audio guides, which was free when I visited (and as far as I know still is).

Although it is not part of the museum, the trip from the town centre deserves a mention as we spent only a little less time on the bus (no. 15) to and from the museum as we did actually inside it. The trip is really quite picturesque, bringing you up to the foothills of the mountains, and is almost worth making even if you don't go into the museum itself. I don't know if we were unlucky though - the seats had only about 2mm soft material over the hard base. I wondered if I only noticed this because the trip took about 35 minutes (each way), but checked on another bus later and this had rather more padding.
