Buddenbrook House

The extensively decorated façade of the Buddenbrook House, originally built in 1758, reveals a lot about the self-assurance and wealth of its bourgeois citizens. The building on Mengestrasse 4 once belonged to Mann’s grandparents, whom he often visited as a young boy. In 1929, Thomas Mann was awarded the Nobel Prize for his social novel “The Buddenbrooks”. At the authentic location, the setting for “Buddenbrooks”, visitors can find out more about the moving life and works of the family of authors as well as about the famous novel and its reception.
