Statue of Hermann Hesse
by Friedhelm Zilly
Im Bündt 13, 78345 Moos,
unveiled in the summer of 2002 in the courtyard
between Hesse's old farmhouse residence in Gaienhofen
and the present Hermann-Hesse-Hoeri Museum
The farmhouse into which Hesse moved with his first wife Maria and where he lived for three years was restored and made accessible to the public in 1993. It was his "first legitimate studio" and is now being used as a museum. The affiliated and larger Hermann-Hesse-Hoeri-Museum is located next door and serves as the location for a variety of cultural events such as concerts, lectures, readings, and seminars.
The museum sponsors a permanent exhibition of Hesse's watercolors and drawings. The emphasis and selection in the exhibition varies from year to year.
