Brecht's House

Svendborg Bibliothek


Brecht's House is the name given to a house on Svendborg Sund, where author Bertolt Brecht, as a refugee from Nazi Germany, lived from 1933 to 1939.

In the 1990's Svendborg Kommune began restoring Brecht's House. Today it is a residence and an inspiring workplace for artists and researchers from around the world. The thatched, half timbered house is offered to people who need, for a period, a peaceful and quiet place for their artistic or scientific work.
