Museums, Historical Buildings

The "Uwe Johnson" House of Literature is located in a former granary built around 1890 near Klützer Marktplatz. Over two floors, the exhibition provides a multifaceted insight into the life and work of Uwe Johnson and thus presents the writer who has always remained closely associated with Mecklenburg.

The listed building houses a permanent exhibition on the writer Uwe Johnson, the city information center and the city library. As a forum for cultural activities, the house presents the fascinating world of literature in a variety of ways. Readings, discussions, films, exhibitions and workshops make it an attraction for the castle town of Klütz and a meeting place for visitors interested in culture and literature. The "Uwe Johnson" House of Literature is one of the few poets' houses in Germany that was not the writer's former place of birth or residence. Even though the house is not a classic poet's house, references to Johnson's texts suggested a literary and touristic use of the store.

Uwe Johnson (1934-1984) is considered one of the most important German writers today. He is the author of the "Anniversaries," one of the most important German novels between the end of the war and reunification. According to the description in the "Jahrestagen," Jerichow is located exactly where the small town of Klütz can be found in northwestern Mecklenburg. Nevertheless, Jerichow remains a fictional place, which the writer only provided with precise geographical information.

Opening hours: April through October from Tuesday - Sunday each day open 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., closed Monday. November to March from Wednesday to Saturday open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday to Tuesday closed.
