The Goethe House, Frankfurt Reviews

  • This is a great location to go to get an understanding of life for the wealthy during Goethe's lifetime. It is interesting to see how they lived and to see how he started out. Although there isn't much English before the tour of the house, the descriptions of the rooms on the English language card are sufficient. I've been here twice, now, and enjoyed myself both times. I definitely recommend it.

  • Very interesting historical place. Self guided with paper handout. Basicly furniture and paintings, but good insight to the times.

  • The house is an interesting place to visit if you are interested in literature and Goethe's work. It was interesting to see what influenced him. Each room is described in detail. The only downside was they told us we had to go downstairs as they were closing in some 5-10 minutes. Their last admittance is 15 mins before closing. Basically, we still had time to see the last floor but we didn't feel comfortable to stay as the employees started warning us even though we had time.

  • Interesting visit. Very well preserved. Nice expositions. They have an interesting self guided system with good brief explanations but if you can join one of the tours you get much more details and the visit is more worth it. You could see that the tour guide was very well informed and although she wasn't very lively (which made the tour a bit boring) she knew a lot about what she was talking about. It's worth a visit.

  • Nice builduing who lived an important writer called Gothe.. it s possible to visit but it is not free.
