    Interesting tour of this place Nietzsche has stayed. We see a correspondence and photographs, but there need to be a connoisseur to appreciate its true value...

    The House of Friedrich Nietzsche in Sils is small but well maintained, right in the middle of the village, surrounded by a small garden. The Museum has three floors, on the ground floor there are the personal belongings of the great philosopher, including many handwritten letters. Upstairs there is a reproduction of her room to read and a very small exhibition dedicated to all the great personalities who have visited Sils, by Thomas Mann to Anne Frank to name just a few. The Museum is really small and unfortunately additional panels are in German only; the Manager was kind enough to lend us a small guide in Italian to be returned at the end of the tour. The Museum is interesting and shows a glimpse of Nietzsche's life is definitely worth seeing if you pass to Sils, even from outside. Entrance fee is €8 per person, you visit in very little time, but the opening times are very limited, so check first to plan your visit.

    In a simple, unassuming House in Sils Maria, Nietzsche spent seven summers after he had to give up his Professorship in Basel illness. Here he found relief and peace and has been writing stimulated "me is as if I were in the land of promise...". In a simple, unbeheizbaren room, he rented a and wrote many important works including the famous "Also sprach Zarathustra". Today, the House can be visited and glimpse at the time in the life and work of Nietzsche's.

  • A formerly simple shopkeepers and farm house served years with a small room during the summer months Nietzsche in the 1880s as accommodation. Today, the building houses a stimulating Museum and accommodation for Nietzsche prospects.
