Brecht museum – where inspiration for literature was born

Brecht house museum in Augsburg is dedicated to the memory of one of the most prominent world playwrights of the 20th century, Berthold Brecht. Brecht was born in Augsburg, here he went to school of the Franciscan monastic order. During the revolution of 1918 in Germany Brecht was even a member of the Augsburg Council of Soldier and Worker Deputies, but soon stepped away from politics. Later he went to live in Munich, and then to Berlin, where he became famous as a playwright and theatrical director. Brecht has created such famous plays as “The Threepenny Opera”, “Mother Courage and Her Children”, “The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui” and many others. 

Brecht museum which is located in the house where the future playwright spent the first two years of his life, exhibits personal items of the writer, photos of him and his parents (with whom, by the way, he did not have the best relationship), works of the playwright are reviewed. Curiously, unlike Remarque who often depicted his hometown Osnabrück in his works, Brecht was never of a high opinion of Augsburg. He even wrote once that the best thing about Augsburg is the railway station where a train to Munich leaves from. However, in Augsburg tourists will be shown not only this but also other houses where the Brechts used to live.
