  Nietzsche-Haus, Naumburg
by antistar
 
 

Although born in the tiny village of Röcken nearby, the world famous philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche grew up in Naumburg and attending school there. The family moved after his father, a pastor in Röcken, died. During the GDR years the name of Nietzsche was unpopular with the elite, due to him becoming a figurehead for the far-right movement in the country. His home was therefore left to rot. It was only after re-unification that the house was restored and turned into a museum. Still, even now, it looks an unimposing site. A dull, square building in a row of much more colourful houses.

Directions: South East of the Markt.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
