    One of the many beautiful places in Weimar. The Goethe House is well preserved and the audioguide in french history of his illustrious resident. There are some interesting items, including the outdoor experience that prolongs the visit.

    an indoor tour (admission 6.50 Weinar-card free of charge) was not possible, because on Mondays, it is located in the park but very nice and you can imagine how Goethe looks in nature and seals

    The Goethe Garden House is worth a recommendation, so you can here learn lot about Goethe. E.G. how and why was this House built him, etc.

  • beautiful and historical, if you are in weimar I totally recommend to visit this, the nature around the house is also very beautiful
  • Can evaluate only from the outside, because I found something covered the price of €6.50. What outside is already beautiful, of course nature, lots of flowers and a fantastic location. The stairs to the right of the House invites to the stay, romantic chic. Wen, the price not scare should look at the Interior.

  • The situation is already appealing, the entrance fee of €6 per person for 5 almost empty rooms, however, is a nerve. Look at from the outside Yes, you can save yourself confidently go.

  • A very beautiful House. Pretty crowded course in high season and in good weather. I sit down like in front of the House on the lawn or on the top of the slope on a bench and I imagine that Goethe is right around the corner and joins for a conversation. A very nice place.
