Hesse was born in the house directly behind the fountain, Calw, Marktplatz Nr.46.
The top of the fountain points almost perfectly to the part of the house occupied by Hermann Hesse's family.
This photo was taken by Gunther Gottschalk in 1994.

For a very old, rather grim photo of the place and some history, click on the above photograph.
