Heine House

The main building, mockingly called the “Offending Palace” by Heinrich Heine (1797-1856), was demolished in 1881. Fortunately for us, the garden house of this stately home, purchased by Hamburg banker and philanthropist Salomon Heine (1767 – 1844) at the beginning of the 19th century, was preserved.

A gem on the Elbchaussee

The Heine Haus has been a heritage protected building since 1962 and a branch of the Altonaer Museum since 1 January 2001.

The main building, mockingly called the “Offending Palace” by Heinrich Heine, was demolished in 1881. Fortunately for us, the garden house of this stately home, purchased by Hamburg banker and philanthropist Salomon Heine (1767– 1844) at the beginning of the 19th century, was preserved. The relationship between Salomon and his poet nephew was certainly not without tension, and the young poet definitely did his uncle wrong in many ways. The garden house built in 1832 was completely renovated in 1999/2000.
