“Nothing in English. Waste of time/money unless you know German.”

Hermann Hesse Museum
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Lots of interesting things, if you're a German speaker. We saw there was nothing written in English so we paid for the audio guide, but it only had big picture descriptions and nothing covering details in each room.
The museum needs to hire someone that knows how to market for international tourists.

The Museum has a great selection to give an impression of Hermann Hesse who was born in Calw in 1877. He left his home town early, because of the mentality of the pietist family. The exhibition is mainly for German speaking peple.

My mother & her partner loved this museum, despite not being able to read German. The museum houses a vast collection of books, photographs & memorbillia on Herman Hesse, his life & family which would interest any fans of the author.
I would have found it more interesting if it wasn't so hot, to the extent that i had to go back downstairs to the cooler floor and wait for my family.
The shop has a good selection of goods including books & calenders and the staff were friendly & helpful.
Admission is normally €5 per person but there are discounts for seniors and those with the Black Forrest Guest Card given out by hotels in the region.
The museum is closed on Mondays.
