He was pleased that “the importance of the university town of Tübingen as a literary and scientific centre will be bolstered by the new museum”. The new Hesse House, he said, is “stimulating cultural education, which is of particular benefit to children and young people”. Palmer anticipates that the institution will develop an impact which will be felt far beyond the region.
The 500 year old house in Tübingen’s old town, which is to accommodate the literature museum, has been closely associated with the history of Hermann Hesse for many years. This is where the poet trained as a book dealer from 1895 to 1898. It was also during this period that his first poems and prose pieces came into being. The rooms are still virtually in their original state. In addition to exhibitions, the Hesse House will also provide space for smaller reading events and lectures.
