Friedrich Nietzsche first came to Sils at the beginning of July 1881, where he rented a room on the first floor of the house belonging to the Durisch family (today’s Nietzsche House). Here he found a place where he was able to rest and concentrate, and he spent every summer here between 1883 and 1888. 

The exhibition comprises a rich collection of photographs, documents, manuscripts and letters from his time in Sils, the original death mask, various busts (Max Kruse, Willy de Boe), music-related exhibits, and a complete collection of the works published by Nietzsche himself during his lifetime, including rare presentation copies. In addition, there is documentation relating to the forgeries perpetrated by Nietzsche’s sister, and also to his time as a professor in Basel (“Basel Room” with original furnishings and documents from the time he spent in Basel between 1869 and 1879). Besides this permanent exhibition devoted to Nietzsche, the Nietzsche House also occasionally hosts temporary exhibitions of modern art.
