A fairytale collection: the Brothers Grimm Museum

Jacob Grimm (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859) are two of the leading figures in German cultural history.

They shot to fame with their collection of fairytales, but their work in the fields of linguistics and literature, law, history and mythology as well as their political activity was also highly significant. Founded in 1959 the museum contains documents that illustrate the life and works of the Brothers Grimm. The exhibition details the most important places where the Brothers Grimm lived and worked in relation to their academic and political activities.
