  • When Goethe there lived, you should have seen the candle in the window in the city. Today you can be (perhaps slightly too much) grow to the Park. The House contributes strongly to a good overall impression of the poet in the context of the Goethe House on the Frauenplan.

  • Nett angelegt, nicht sehr aufregend.
  • If you're in Weimar, you should have seen Goethe's Garden House! The Park, this Garden House is located in the, invites to a walk and a picnic. In the Garden House itself, you get, if you want an audio guide.

  • Residential and workplace of Johann Wolfgang of Goethe's from 1776 to 1782 with furnishings from all stages of the life of the poet. The late 16. century little Mountain House was Goethe's first private residence in Weimar. The garden behind the House is divided into a park-like slope area, a clear orchard and vegetable beds and served as a place for social gatherings. Very special atmosphere!

  • Thanks to an audio guide, you can explore the Garden House on own fist (!).
