What people are saying:

If you are in Frankfurt, consider a visit to this place. Goethe, one of Germany's national poets, was born and spent his youth here. It is the house of his family. There are furniture and several objects related to his family on exhibition. If you have more time, combine this with a visit to Leipzig (where Goethe attended university) and Goethe national museum in Weimar (the city where Goethe spent most of his productive live as a poet).

    Impressive and informative

    A wonderful visit to the past with just the right amount of historic information provided for the visual treats found here. The pride and beauty of the workmanship in the furniture was worth the visit...

    Interesting and informative place!

    We visited the house of Goethe during our trip to Frankfurt. Nice place to spend some time, but unfortunately it is much more focused on his life there rather than his works. In any case, interesting ...

    A must for book lovers.

    I have a Master in German literature and I always wanted to visit this place. It was perfect, full of memories. Tickets cheap.

Additional Information


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.
