Gunter Grass' Home

  ul. Joachima Lelewela 13, Gdańsk ,   Wrzeszcz         more than a year ago

A word of warning on this one. While the address was and still is at number 13, ul. Lelewela (Labesweg), the buildings are numbered in a peculiar way here meaning Grass’ home can be found following on from numbers 12 and 17. The building that Grass grew up in featured a grocer’s store at street level with the Grass family flat adjacent to it. In The Tin Drum, Oskar climbs to the attic to look out of the window and you can get a sense of that by popping around the corner into ul. Aldony and turning right in the courtyard behind the building.
