We’ve all read the Pied Piper of Hamelin but do we know who wrote it? One of Germany’s most famous and well loved authors, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe! Housed in a pretty pink house on the edge of the Horgarten Park, the Goethe Museum beckons one and all. A baroque that used to be a palace now houses the Goethe Museum under the administration of the Anton and Katharina Kippenberg Foundation. Exhibits include personal correspondences, first edition works, original manuscripts and other personal memorabilia of the celebrated author.

  • Lovely museum with lots of interesting details but sadly I haven't seen any English information apart from the small leaflet which doesn't cover the whole exhibition. Stunning building, amazing porcelain and china sets. Definitely worth a visit but learn the language first or have somebody speak it on your group.

  • Lovely building and staff. A number of rooms (locked) and items (in display cases, but still wrapped) unavailable, but more English-language signs than expected. Enjoyed the visit.

  • wonderful collection, friendly staff

  • Visit with german speaker if you don't understand it, because there is literally no translations.

  • Basically non Germans are not welcome, not even English here. No translation, no explanation. Simple waste of time to get in to something buying a ticket n not appreciate the exhibits.
