An exhibition that brings writing and inspiration to life

Hamburg is not only a fascinating port city, but also the birthplace of the traditional Montblanc company. The Montblanc House tells the story of the company and invites visitors into the world of writing.

The MONTBLANC House brings the history of writing itself and writing utensils to life, from their origins to the present day. The 3,600 m2 exhibition celebrates the people around the world, who have immortalised themselves through writing and educates visitors on the art of writing.

Inspire Writing - The exhibition

"Inspire Writing" tells the story of MONTBLANC- from start-up to traditional company. The immersive experience focuses on people who follow their own intuition and inspire the world through their written contributions. The permanent exhibition features over 400 Montblanc writing instruments, including historic fountain pens and their latest products. Original handwritings by writing celebrities such as Frida Kahlo, Ernest Hemingway and Jackie Chan are also on display. You will also get exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpses of the manufacturing process and the creation of the nibs. Experience the inspiration of writing and be inspired to write.
