Located in the love Par on the Ilm, Goethe’s Gartenhouse was built in late 16th century. For 6 years the little vineyard cottage was what the poet called as his home. Within the walls of the Gartenhouse, Johann Wolfgang Goethe created some his most extraordinary literary works like the Erlkonig ballad.
But the appeal of the Gartenhouse lies in its gardens. A charming little white welcomes you into the gorgeous gardens through a pebbled path. Designed by Goethe himself they are pretty much the way they used to be and consist of –
- A well laid garden slope behind the house.
- A beautiful orchard
- A vegetable bed in the lower part of the garden.
The Gartenhouse itself is home to various objects from Goethe’s life which include –
- Furnishings from Goethe’s original inventory.
- An assortment of Goethe’s drawing produced in or near the Gartenhouse.
- Photographs, manuscripts and other objects that belonged to Goethe.
