After three hours in the Goethehaus the next logical step was a walk through the park to his garden house. Yes, it is worth the entrance fee, which includes an audio guide. You really feel his presence here. A lot of stuff is original, as...More

Although the gardenhouse is small, it is charming and contains a few mentors belonging to Goethe: his travelling bed and a specialfly designed chair for writing on his upstanding writing desk. Situated in the park an der Ilm, you cannot drive to the house, but...More

The park is really nice to walk especially beside Sternbruecke (Star bridge). There is the Ilm river and during summer is a nice place to chill out.

Went on a walk through the park to find this and after a while we managed to! Lovely to see a historical building in such great condition and in such a beautiful spot. Well worth a visit as the park is divine.

This small country house is just a ten-minute walk through pleasant woodland from the centre of town. It comes into sight as soon as you cross the river. It is a modest building, consisting of just five small rooms, including Goethe’s study, bedroom and lounge....More

This very modest house (most decent farmhouses of the period were bigger; compare to Mary Arden's - Shakespeare's mother's - house in Stratford, that is 200 years older) occupies the most scenic lot in Germany. Which says that Goethe had marvelous taste, and, as the...More

This house is beautifully located in the Park on the Ilm, but there's not much old furniture still left in the house, so it's hard to get an impression of how it might have looked when Goethe lived there.
