The Goethe House, Frankfurt Reviews

Google+
  • 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.

  • Brings out the full gamut of Goethe's life and times. Worth visiting over and over again!

  • House is quite large and they have a substantial art gallery above the museum. The house has a lot of interesting furniture and it's clear Goethe was pretty wealthy even as a young child
