The Feierabendhaus

The Feierabendhaus was built in 1895 by Anna Vorwerk, the head of the girls' school in the Wolfenbüttel castle, as a home for retired lady teachers. The Feierabend Foundation rents apartments to the Library Friends Group, which subsidizes and maintains guest accommodation for library fellows and guest researchers. The house is old fashioned, but is located in the immediate vicinity of the library and is very quiet.
