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 addition for everyone interested in literature and admires this...More

The house is a replica of the original, but a good one. I enjoyed visiting it and did not get bored. The brochure you are given contains interesting information about the rooms and Goethe's life. Audio guide is paid separately.

Goethe’s house is typical from Frankfurt. Located near Willy-Brandt-Platz it encompasses original furniture and paintings spread over several courses. Interesting if you are fond of history or litterature.

Spent about an hour looking around Goethe’s house which was interesting. It has been rebuilt as the original was destroyed. I would recommend the audio guide (€3,50) as it provides a short commentary on each room and also items within each room and information you...More

Goethe House is located just under a mile away from Frankfurt Hbf. The house was bombed during World War II but fortunately all furniture and art work had been stored elsewhere and so when it was opened in 1954 after reconstruction, we can still view...More
