The Kurt Tucholsky Museum of Literature is located in Rheinsberg Castle. Since its inception in 1993, it has been the only Tucholsky Museum in Germany. As a literary competence centre in the north of Brandenburg, it offers a large number of exhibitions, events, publications and projects as a basis for a spiritual exchange of literature - both in the confrontation with past literary eras and with contemporary literature.

The focus of the museum's work is on collecting, preserving, researching and presenting testimonies to the life and work of the journalist Kurt Tucholsky.

In addition to this collection, the museum's scientific archive also focuses on other fields of literature, politics and society that are indispensable for the preservation and preservation of cultural assets. In cooperation with the Brandenburg Literature Office, the Literature Museum sees itself as a documentation and information centre that vouches for the long-term preservation of the archival material gained from the Zeitstimmen project and is committed to its collection, organisation and preservation as well as to the cataloguing of other cultural assets.
