Calw Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 36 photos
On Monday 2nd July 1877 at 18:30 Hermann Hesse was born in a flat on the second floor of Marktplatz 6, Calw, opposite the town hall, and lived there for the greater part of his youth.
Hermann Hesse is one of Germany's, if not the World's best writers. In 1946 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature for his book "The Glass Bead Game", or, in German, "Das Glasperlenspiel".
In addition to the excellent Hermann Hesse Museum, the town has several interesting sites to visit, including a lot of information relating to Hesse. The town itself is a quaint, attractive town, sitting on the River Nagold.
- Pros:Excellent history on Hermann Hesse
- In a nutshell:Essential visit for any Hesse Fans
