couple of blocks away from Buddenbrookhaus, the Günter Grass-Haus
celebrates the career of a German writer and artist who won the Nobel
Prize for Literature in 1999.
The house has exhibits of Grass's manuscripts in various stages, from first
drafts through printed works. You'll also find many different watercolors,
lithographs, and sculptures by the author-artist, who studied art before turning
to literature. (Be sure to visit the sculpture garden.)
