Hermann Hesse

In the footsteps of Hermann Hesse: in the House/Museum in Collina d'Oro

15 minutes by car from Tresa Bay, spend a few hours in peace and silence retracing 40 years of life and works of the writer Nobel Prize


In every season there is a good reason to stay at the Tresa Bay Hotel and the proximity to the place where one of the most famous writers of the twentieth century lived is one of them.

Montagnola and more precisely the Collina d'Oro are just a few kilometres from our hotel; here you will find the museum dedicated to Hermann Hesse, a museum that has been his home for many years. 
In fact, the writer was enchanted by the view of Ticino that he enjoyed from the Collina d'Oro, as well as by the sense of peace and solitude that he needed, both personally and artistically.
It was in Montagnola that he wrote some of his most famous works, including Siddharta and Narciso Bocca d'Oro.
Along with the visit of the museum you can not miss the walk with the possibility of audioguide in the places dearest to the writer, in the houses where he lived and in the cemetery where he is buried.

And after nourishing your spirit, nourish your body starting with a tasty aperitif on our panoramic terrace and followed by a delicious dinner by the lake: our kitchen and service staff will enchant you as our wonderful Ticino enchanted the writer.
