Welcome to the website of the Kleist-Museum!
Our museum is called like a famous writer:
Heinrich von Kleist.
Heinrich von Kleist lived a long time ago.
He wrote many stories and theater plays.
Many people still read these stories today.
And his theater plays are often performed.
On this website you can learn more about the museum.
And you will get a lot of information for your visit.
The permanent exhibition is entitled:
Puzzles. Conflicts. Fractures.
There are many texts, objects and pictures.

And they show his stories and theater plays.

Unfortunately, von Kleist did not want to live any longer at the age of 34.
He shot himself and a woman.
A room in the museum tells about his death.
