Schumannhaus, the former Richarz'sche Heilanstalt

Composer and pianist Robert Schumann lived for the last two years of his life in the mental home Richarz'sche Heilanstalt on Magdalenenstraße (on today's Sebastianstraße) where he died on July 29, 1856. In 1984 his last residence was named Schumannhaus (Schumann house) and was converted into a music library and museum.
