How to get into The Wittgenstein House
The main aim for The Foundation – re-election of the House – was succsessfully reached in 2019. The following operational years will be based on serving all kinds of interests connected to the house. Already this first year there have been a great interest for visiting the site among tourists in general. From the closer Wittgenstein-interested we have had visitors, applies for recidences, participation in seminar and proposals for arrangements. Due to the corona-situation several activities have been difficult to arrange.
