The Brahms House (Brahms-Haus), also known as Lichtental No. 8, is a biographical museum dedicated to Johannes Brahms in Baden-Baden, Germany. The museum is centered on the building's attic, where Brahms lived and worked on his music while in residence.
Johannes Brahms lived in Lichtental No. 8 from 1865 to 1874 during the summer months, originally because of a tip from Clara Schumann. While residing here, Brahms worked on pieces such as his first and second symphonies, the piano quintet, second string sextet, and parts of A German Requiem.
The Baden-Baden Brahms Society acquired the house in 1967, saving it from demolition.
Brahms's summer-time residence in the attic of Lichtental No. 8 is the center of the museum documenting the composer's life.
Every two years, the Baden-Baden Brahms Society organizes and hosts the Brahms Days in the city's concert halls.
