The only thing from Goethe preserved at this location is some (polished) furniture. The rest is fake all the way: the walls have brand new wallpaper and some rooms are made of plastic just like Disneyworld. And that’s it, there’s nothing else besides decorated rooms!...More

Great for people interested in old interieur. If you want to see how Goethe lived and where he wrote....here you are. It-s close to all the shopping, restaurants, cafés and public transport.

Having studied Goethe at School it was amazing to wander through his house to see where he wrote and to learn more firsthand about his family. The furnishings and paintings take you back in time.

It isn't a big place, but the history was nice. Staff was very short and not at all helpful. It was cold when I was visiting, but the house was extremly hot. Be careful going in the summer.

I thought I was going to be bored looking at a 'house', but it couldn't have been further from the truth! Go to Goethe's house, it is so revealing; and at the end of your exploration of the house there is a nice little twist.

You can see how people live during the period of Goethe and admire the house where he was born and raised. The furniture is interesting and those who are interested in german litereature will find a lot to learn from the visit.
