This memorial lies in a side street off of a shopping pedestrian area and was hard to find. The actual statue is lifesize and sits on top of a pillar and has a gold leaf plaque depicting his name.

Lovely memorial to honour Goethe who studied in Leipzig for 3 years. It is centrally located behind the Altes Rathaus and near Marktplatz.

I saw only the building and the monument from outside.
Small and nice, nearby the market square.
We enjoyed tea and coffee in the restaurant next to the memorial.

The memorial has pictures of one woman he loved as a 16 year old, tho she was 19 so that went nowhere. He arrived as a 16 year old at the Leipzig university, but the sculptor used an older man as the model of Goethe when he arrived.

This is something for literature fans -- those who like Faust.... Goethe was in Leipzig and this is where he wrote Faust... I am told that he did a lot of writings in a restaurant in the cellar... drinking beer.... Nice place for a writer... so, check out the monument and pay your respect to the great writer....

Pretty much that all, a statue in a nice plaza with the alte burse in the back. Good for them to keep his memory alive.
