Klopstock House

Schlossberg 12, Tel. 03946/2610 and 03946/905691, Fax 03946/ 515975

The birth house of the poet Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock was built around 1560, the golden age of lower Saxon half-timbered style, and is one of the numerous architectural monuments in Quedlinburg.
Since 1899, the Klopstock House has presented in its function as a biographical/literary historical museum insights into the poet’s life and work. Klopstock’s accomplishments can be measured by the extent to which he made a lasting impression on the new literary movements of his time. His epic creation (\"The Messiah”) and his lyrical work (odes, hymns, elegies, and songs) mark a turning point in the history of German poetry. Klopstock’s work stands at a divide between literary epochs. His oeuvre can be characterized as the foundation that was laid from which the literature of German Classicism then evolved. What today is regarded as his greatest accomplishment is his revival and expansion of poetic language and style.
In the Klopstock House, the visitor can view other permanent exhibitions consecrated to additional important Quedlinburger personalities of the 18th and 19th centuries. Here one can inform oneself about the life and work of Dorothea Christiana Exleben (1715-1762), the first German woman to be awarded a doctorate in medicine. There is much to be learned about Johann Christoph Friedrich GutsMuths (1759 - 1839), the important philanthropic pedagogue, whose most significant contribution was the introduction of systematic sport instruction to school curricula, and about Carl Ritter (1779 -1859), the founder of the modern scientific discipline of geography. In alternating exhibitions, a comprehensive collection of works by the Queldinburger Wilhelm Steuerwald (1815 - 1871), a painter of the Romantic school, is also presented.
