Heinrich Heine (1797-1856) is regarded as one of Germany's greatest writers. The centerpiece of the Institute is an exhibition documenting his life, his work and the influence which he has had upon German literature over the centuries. The library, which includes the manuscript department of the regional and city library, is a starting point for literary research and the archives cover the fields of literature, music, art and science. This unique cultural institution not only allows scholars access to research material, but is also a forum for communication and critical discussion.
