Goethes Gartenhaus


  1. Anonym7/11/10

    Das alles gehört in einer Gallerie!!!

  2. Is it Johann W. von Goethe's house? Open for public visit, maybe converted into museum? I'd like very much to step in and see this most important writer's living place, works etc.

  3. @anonym: Warum gehört das alles in eine Gallerie? Die Fotos sind doch bereits in einer Gallerie (!) - in meiner hier... ;-))

    @Nihal: ...as the title tells you, Nihal: It's Goethes garden house, located in the park along the river Ilm ("Ilmpark"), where he lived and worked until the year 1782. Thereafter he moved to a more representative and much bigger house in midtown Weimar, the "Haus am Frauenplan" ( http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goethes_Wohnhaus ).
    You can visit both, but unfortunately it's (officially) forbidden to take photos - the guys of the museums want to sell their own postcards with the motifs of Goethes residence...

    Whenever you have the choice to visit Weimar - the home of the "Weimar classics" like Goethe, Schiller, Herder and Wieland - it's really worth doing it. Whole Weimar midtown is really an absolute picture...
