很可愛的小地方

尼采度假的地方,真是太可愛太美的小城鎮啦!這裡的人都超親切的,每個人都會跟你打招呼。尼采曾說: 一段不幸的婚姻不是缺乏愛,而是缺乏友誼 "It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages."很值得好好品味一番

Nietzsche Haus may not have much to offer someone who is not a fan of the great philosopher. For me, however, it was a pilgrimage well worth making. But it's really not the photographs and letters, not the death mask, nor recreated office, nor the upstairs room where the master wrote some of his greatest works -- it's what you... More

We recently visited the Nietzsche-Haus to learn more about his life and works. The museum is more like a library, with many of Nietzsche's books displayed on shelves and original documents connected to him presented under glass-covered cases. A person on staff at the small reception desk helped us understand some of the broad outlines of Nietzsche's story. Perhaps the... More

Very few places of similar historic significance are as intimately presented as the Nietzsche Haus. It is as if the great man had left only a few previous moments ago. The atmosphere thrums with the collective memory of the many luminaries (scientific, literary and otherwise) who have all made the pilgrimage to Sils Maria to witness this little jewel box... More

This small house bears witness to one great man and his work, and is also a great place to see work of several contemporary artists

Its an nice little house in Sils, Graubünden. But nothing special. Maybe reading Nietzsches books is more interesting. For somebody who likes this kind of Philosophy.

The Nietsche haus is one of the few remaining old houses in Sils Maria and even thoug you don't care about Nietzsche, it is worth visiting. When I was there it was half buried in the snow, which may explain why the man was a little melancholy. The museum is well kept and has a nice atmosphere but check the... More

I have not considered Nietzsche since high school but am culturally interested and do not mind philosophy. So on this rainy day I joined the tour and was absolutely fascinated! You sit in a small room listening to the curator who has spent his life on researching Nietzsche, providing an easy to understand and lifely account of his work. Will... More

The house is well preserved. To understand Nietzsche thoughts and make a step back in this writer's past.

In addition, some items relating to Anne Frank, who stayed with her family in a house located above the Waldhaus hotel.
