Residences 

 

In 1973, Böll listed all the places where he had written, which is most often where he lived.

 

(Numbers indicate his estimate of how many written works were undertaken at each place): 

 

  1. Schillerstrasse, Cologne, until 1954 (230)

  2. Kirchheim and Bonn until 1954 (27)

  3. Müngersdorf 1954 - 1969 (125)

  4. Denmark 1957 and 1959 (6)

  5. Lövenich 1958 - 1962 (54)

  6. Switzerland 1958 (5)

  7. Rome 1961 (8)

  8. Jugoslavia 1961 (2)

  9. Müngersdorf (Garden house) 1963 - 1967 (83)

10. Gracht 1965 - 1966 (5)

11. Langenbroich 1966 - 1973 (203)

12. Sternengasse, Cologne 1968 - 1969 (9)

13. Fleischmengergasse, Cologne 1968 (15)

14. Hülchratherstrasse (Apartment) 1969 - 1973 (73)

15. Ireland (Keel & Dugort) between 1954 and 1968 (68)

16. Hülchratherstrasse (Attic) from July 1969 (62)

 

After 1973, his places of work were:

 

in Hülchratherstrasse (Cologne) until 1982,

in Martinstrasse in Bornheim-Merten from 1982 to 1985, and

in his country house at Langenbroich in the Eifel until 1985.

 

Böll had mainly offices in the houses where he lived: Schillerstrasse or Hülchratherstrasse in Cologne. 

 

Wanting to work undisturbed on larger texts, however, he rented rooms.

 

He completed the novel 'Billiards at half past nine' (Billard um halb zehn) in the Cologne suburb of Lövenich.
