Frankfurt Travel Tip:
Goethe House and Museum
Visit the birthplace and childhood home of Germany's most important writer, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832). With its period furniture and old paintings, the late Baroque bourgeois house still harbors the spirit of this period. Goethe’s parent’s house is one of the oldest and most interesting memorials in Germany.
The museum next door is the only picture gallery exclusively dedicated to the Age of Goethe. Here you will find pictures by important artists of the German-speaking lands, from Late Baroque through Sturm und Drang, Classicism and Romanticism to the Biedermeier period. It is not a literary museum in the usual sense of the term – instead, the fourteen rooms offer you a journey through the art of the Age of Goethe. Goethe, himself an artist and collector, attaches great importance to fine art throughout his life.
Hours: Monday -Saturday 10am-6pm; Sunday and public holidays 10am-5:30pm.
Admission: Adults 5 €, Reduced 3 €, Students 2.50 €, Children (7-18 years) 1.50 €, Children 6 & under Free, Family card 8 Euro.
