Guided tours for schools

Duration: 45 minutes
Guided tours of the Literature Museum are available for all age groups. We want to get schoolchildren excited about literature and arouse their interest in texts. We also guide school classes with no previous knowledge of literature through the unique rooms of the former Hofkammerarchiv, which are protected as historical monuments. They experience literature in different media, from manuscripts and books to radio plays, music and film. They are encouraged to think about objects and their stories and get a taste for literature.


  • Children and young people up to 19 years of age have free admission to all museum areas.
  • Guided tour fee per student (from 10 persons): EUR 3.0-
  • Teachers and accompanying persons (two per class) free of charge.

Writing workshop with guided tour for schools

Duration: 90 minutes
Get creative yourself with your school class! Pupils have the opportunity to try their hand as authors themselves in a writing workshop. To get them in the mood, they will also learn about the permanent exhibition in an overview tour. We invite the students to experiment with language and to get involved with the stories that the texts and objects in our museum have to tell. In the process, they can become part of the museum themselves with their texts.


Children and teens 19 and under are admitted free to all museum areas.
Guide fee per pupil (from 15 pupils): EUR 5.-
Teachers and accompanying persons (two per class) free of charge.
