Buddenbrook House

    This house was occupied by Thomas Mann in the middle of the nineteenth century, and was the setting for his Nobel Prize winning novel, "Buddenbrooks." The house has been restored to appear as the fictional house depicted in Mann's novel. A fictional family inhabits the house, and details from the book have  been reproduced in its five storeys. Guided tours are available, and special events take place regularly.

    The museum is open November through March daily from 10am to 5pm, and the rest of the year from 10am to 6pm.
