About Goethe House

The Goethe House was adjacent to the Goethe Museum. In 1749, the famous German poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe was born here and spent his youth here. The former residence was as old as the German dwellings. It was not eye-catching. The building was almost completely destroyed during World War II. After the war, people restored the original appearance of the former residence. Precious furniture, artistic artifacts, valuable ornaments, books, portraits, and manuscripts that were carefully moved elsewhere during the war were all transferred back after the war, and they are now resting in a position that once belonged to them.

    This four-storey building is Goethe's birthplace, which was restored after World War II. Goethe's mother is the daughter of the mayor of Frankfurt, so the house should be his grandfather's. Goethe's father is a city councillor with a doctorate in law. He has a profound humanistic literacy and a wide range of literary and artistic interests. He teaches many courses in person to young Goethe brothers and sisters. So the study and gallery in the building are very impressive. Grune Sosse, Goethe's favorite home dish, is fresh and special. The key to a large plate is that the green sauce with the flavor of fresh vegetable is mixed with various materials. It is usually smeared on boiled potatoes, eggs and beef. That's why there are eggs and potatoes on the plate.

    Beautiful as a picture! It was almost destroyed in World War II. The people around him spontaneously protected the old things and returned to Zhao after the war. Goethe has lived in Frankfurt for more than 20 years. He has completed many works, such as poetry, painting and so on. It is worth visiting.

    Goethe's former residence is a must for young literary and artistic people. Its appearance is very insignificant. There are four floors in Goethe's former residence. I don't know how beautiful it is. This is the place where Goethe lived when he was a teenager. From a glance, we can see that Goethe came from a big family. The furniture furnishings in his family are very high-grade and worth visiting.

    Goethe's former residence was totally destroyed in World War II. It was repaired after World War II. There were four floors. One floor was kitchen and dining room, the second floor was Rococo style salon and music room, the third floor was corridor with exquisite astronomical clock, and the fourth floor was poet's room. He created many classic works here.

    The original restores the birthplace of Great Wenhao Goethe, although it was destroyed in World War II - every room is still very Rococo! Muums are scattered along the Maine River, and it is estimated that it will take two days to see them all!

    Goethe's former residence is linked to the Goethe Museum, which shows Goethe's furniture and living scenes during his residence. The former residence has a large area of more than a dozen rooms, three floors, and a large garden. It can be seen that Goethe was also a rich man before him.

    Goethe's former residence is well worth visiting. It used to be about 15 minutes'walk from the Central Railway Station, and it was all downtown. Goethe's former residence is located on a very inconspicuous path, but it's easy to find.

    When we came in, a 70-year-old local enthusiastically told us that "Yesterday was Goethe's birthday. He was born on the third floor of the house on August 28, 1749. Look at it."

    Not far from Goethe's sculpture was a quiet alley paved with stones. There was a house in Goethe's former residence. I found a bronze medal inscribed in German - "Goethe Hous'. Goethe wrote "The Trouble of Young Witt" here when he was 24 years old. In the book, the young man who hated feudal autocracy and was incompatible with reality finally committed suicide in anger. As early as 1903, this novel was translated into Chinese by Ma Junwu and appeared in China. Goethe later wrote the first draft of Faust here. As the former residence had not yet opened, I wandered around the door and heard a passer-by say that it had been leveled by air raids during World War II. In order to let the world know the living environment of Goethe when he was young, the German government rebuilt it after World War II and tried to maintain the style of the original residence, brick by brick, grass and wood, which was similar to that of that time. It seems that Germans highly respect cultural and historical celebrities. Goethe's father was a doctor of law, and his mother was the daughter of the mayor of Frankfurt. Goethe received a good education from an early age. Goethe learned many foreign languages as a child, began reading Aesop's fables and Homer's epics at the age of 10, and began to contact French drama. At the age of 16, Goethe went to Leipzig University to study law and began to read Voltaire and Rousseau. Because he absorbed everything extensively, at the age of 24, he completed "The Trouble of Young Witt" in this apartment.

    To see Goethe's former residence in Frankfurt, there is no grandeur or deep courtyard, but a low-key courtyard that can be submerged in the ancient buildings. I once recited his poem: the mountains are silent, the trees are breezy, the birds in the woods are silent, waiting for you to rest. He rested in the hearts of all his admirers.
