Two mansard windows fill this room with ample sunlight. In the winter the barren trees on Johnson Street
allow for some limited views of Provincetown's scenic harbor, which can especially be beautiful at sunrise.
A walnut wood slay bed, antique prints from Heine's hometown Düsseldorf and other artifacts commemorating
the poet complete this typical German Schlafzimmer.
As this is a German-owned guesthouse, we have included some poets from our native land. Heinrich Heine was a German-born poet and writer of the late 1700's who was more highly regarded in France, England, and America than in his homeland. His poetry and thinking was deeply influenced by major events of the time like the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars. He died in Paris, where he had lived from 1831 as one of the central figures of the literary scene.
