Fondazione Hermann Hesse Montagnola
Permanent exhibition
A permanent exhibition brings back to life Hesse's 40 years in Montagnola.

The many personal belongings, photos, books and watercolour paintings show not only the writer, but also Hesse as a private person.

The focus on certain themes, such as India or the writing of The Glass Bead Game, provide the opportunity to follow the writer's creative process.

The Hermann Hesse Museum in Montagnola offers a variety of activities. Temporary exhibitions, lectures, concerts, films, walking-tours, and weekly readings in two languages make the Museum a lively meeting point for visitors from all over the world.
