History and Book locations: Goethe’s & Schiller’s houses

A few pictures from a weekend trip to Weimar in Thuringia, Germany. Weimar has a vast cultural heritage. It was the home of two leading characters of the Weimar Classicism, the birthplace of the first German republic, the Weimar republic, and also the founding place of the Bauhaus school.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe lived in this house from 1788 to 1789 and then again from 1792 until his death in 1832.

It belongs, together with Goethe’s garden house, to Classical Weimar which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.




Friedrich von Schiller bought this house in 1802 and lived in it until his death in 1805.
