  • Through the audioguide, it is wonderfully led by Goethe's Garden House and can establish the link to his times and his work.

  • Goethe's Garden House is situated in the eastern part of the Park on the river ILM. From the marketplace, it is walking in less than ten minutes. The former Mountain House in the Park was probably built at the end of the 16th century. It was Johann Wolfgang Goethe's first private residence in Weimar. Today, the House as a museum can be visited. We have felt the whole House as a pretty unexciting. It's quite nice to look at, but not really exciting. A visit to the Museum is rather suitable for friends and admirers of the Prince of poets.

  • The Garden House also belong, is small and nice and easy to reach via a Park walk. It's a short spot - just a Garden House, you should have visited it but.

  • Very quiet and lovely place
  • beautiful and historical, if you are in weimar I totally recommend to visit this, the nature around the house is also very beautiful
  • Oh, you should not complain about the high price of admission. There is something special when you think about, that can you can visit the place where the poet Prince was so happy with his Christiane. If then before the House, the Red stick Roses bloom, a look at the property is really appealing. And then, this magnificent English landscape garden.

  • A nice sight is Goethe's Garden House but unfortunately not worth the required € 6.50 apiece. The Park drum around suitable but wonderful to relax a little and take a walk.

  • See the best only from the outside. You can see the garden still and he's nothing special. You can really save the expensive admission. Rather see his house in the city centre. However the Park in the summer house is located is really good for a walk and is beautifully landscaped and well maintained.
