  • It is obvious that the Nietzsche House is the place to see in Sils Maria Waldhaus hotel. The House is open from 15: 00 to 18: 00 and closed on Monday. I was there on Monday but incredible luck, turning the evening, a guest is out to get firewood... I was able to discover the House in complete privacy. The House is very simple and there is not much to see. The essential is not to see but to feel. There be there where Nietzsche spent his summer months.

  • From the outside the Nietzsche House in the small village of Sils Maria has for her to be perfectly evocative of a time where we lived more frugally in the Engadine. This little White House with Green Shutters has lots of charm, which prompts to enter in its simplicity. But the truth unless you master German and be passionate about Nietzsche is not necessary to cross the threshold. If you do not resist the curiosity to visit the places where the works are born of maturity, it will cost you eight Swiss francs requested at the entrance by a person who will barely lift the eyes of his newspaper and will not experience the temptation to offer you some practical information as visitors throng not at the box office. So you walk at leisure and at random, but on the ground floor will not see much if not the death mask of the philosopher. Apart from this large exhibition of letters, photographs, musical scores, books, accompanied by abundant explanations, but all in German. Much of this documentation and the space is also devoted to Nietzsche, but two or three people who, particularly in the 1930s, endeavored to exonerate the philosopher of all proto-nazisme in a moment where her sister met Hitler on his subject. Parts of the ground floor, in fact, don't hardly give an idea of the life of Nietzsche in the House. Incongruous way part reconstructs, with original furniture, the philosopher's office when he was Professor at Basel. He needs to be the first floor to be convinced at last that the talent of Nietzsche really took his quarters in this House for seven years. There are very severely decorated and furnished his room/office: narrow bed, small office, broc and toilet bowl on a table in a corner, no book. We would have liked to know where was its library, and his living room, and kitchen... But nothing, and on top of that we can get into the House. Craning to see the bed! It appears very frustrated.

  • In the eighties of the nineteenth century the Silse has stayed on Friedrich Nietzsche. The white two-story house where he lived, is a museum. You can see the manuscript of the German writer and philosopher, as well as his photographs. Also preserved room where Nietzsche wrote his most famous work "thus spoke Zarathustra". Visiting the Museum will cost eight francs. .
