Welcome to the site of E.T.A. Hoffmann!

The great German Romantic was born 24th of January 1776 as Ernst Theodor Wilhelm Hoffmann at Königsberg/Eastern Prussia (now Kaliningrad) and died 25th of June 1822 in Berlin.

The site of the E.T.A. Hoffmann Society provides information about the artist, his work and the E.T.A. Hoffmann House in Bamberg.
Moreover we present the Society and its journal “E.T.A. Hoffmann Jahrbuch”. The society keeps the artistic memory of the poet, composer, painter and lawyer alive, takes care of it, promotes research work and provides contact among researchers and admirers.
Members give notice of publications and reviews or publish their texts on the site.
