The Literaturhaus was built in 1868 by Jean David Jollasse. As was the fashion in those days, the facade combines late classic elements with romantic and gothic details. There are 3 beautiful salons and a bar on the first floor. The staircase with its cast iron banisters presents a magnificent location. The ballroom, added-on in 1889, with pillars, frescos, stucco and chandeliers, is the show-piece of the Literaturhaus.
