Information

The historic kitchen of the Amtshaus has been reconstructed as it may have looked in the days of the Grimm family. Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm have gone down in European intellectual history as linguists and the founders of German studies. Their scientific work, including the German Dictionary, which is still important and valid today, is documented here with numerous first editions. Ludwig Emil Grimm, the youngest brother, had studied at the Munich Art Academy and made a name for himself primarily as a graphic artist. The Ludwig Emil Grimm Cabinet shows a cross-section of his graphics and drawings. The upper floor is dedicated to the most famous work of the Brothers Grimm, the "Kinder- und Hausmärchen" (Children's and Household Tales), which have been translated in more than 160 languages and dialects and are well known on all continents. In very differently designed rooms, visitors are enabled to find their way into their own fairy tale world in a playful yet scientific way.
