The house of the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951) in Luster municipality in Sogn, Norway is now protected by the National Heritage Board.

In a steep slope at the end of Eidsvatnet in Skjolden stands the house that the world-famous philosopher from Austria built in Norway in 1914.

The National Heritage Board decided that the house, which was returned to its original place in 2019, should be protected.

“Since the house has now been rebuilt and protected in its original place, we can ensure that this very special, international history can be experienced and taken care of,” said Minister of Climate and Environment Sveinung Rotevatn (V).

The protection encompasses the house’s interior, along with the entire exterior property, including the path up from Eidsvatnet and the nearby area.
