Goethehaus

German writer Johann Wolfgang Goethe on August 28th, 1749. The same house where he lived and wrote some of his masterpieces, right on Frankfurt’s oldtown, can be visit nowadays, after more than two centures, restored and in perfect condition. The four floors of the house are an invaluable testimony about society and life in Frankfurt in the 18th century.

Many of the exhibitis were removed for safety during bombings on the World War II but, after the house was rebuilt, these pieces returned in perfect condition.

All the information panels audio guides, on German and English, provide all the insights necessary to immerse the visitor in the Age of Romanticism.

The museum next to the house also worth a visit: beautiful artworks by Goethe and other artists from the same era, a a surprisingly good collection of late-18th and early-19th century art.

The house and the museum are open every day, from 10am to 6pm, Sunday and holidays till 5:30pm. Tickets cost 7€ (general) and 3€ (reduced price). Group prices and tours are available.
