Tracking down Thomas Mann

Although born in Lübeck, Thomas Mann, winner of the Nobel prize for literature, lived in Munich for more than four decades. On this tour, you can relive the era of the Nobel laureate in Bavaria’s capital, which was then one of the world’s leading cultural metropolises. He commemorated his adopted city in his novella “Gladius dei”, which includes the much-quoted phrase “München leuchtete” – “Munich shone“.
