Fondation Rainer Maria Rilke

The Rainer Maria Rilke Foundation provides an introduction to the life and work of this poet, who loved our region.

Housed in the Maison Pancrace de Courten (1769), the Rainer Maria Rilke Foundation honours the memory of the great European poet from Prague, who lived at the Château de Muzot, in Veyras, from 1921 to 1926.

The house contains a permanent exhibition, a library containing around 7,000 items, and archives.
