Buddenbrookhaus Description
To the north of the Marienkirche in Lübeck, at Mengstrasse 4, is the Buddenbrookhaus, famed as the setting of Thomas Mann's novel "Buddenbrooks". The house (1758; restored) belonged to the novelist's family from 1841 to 1891. At Nos. 48-50 is the Schabbelhaus (rebuilt after destruction during the Second World War; now a restaurant, with a traditional Lübeck interior).
