Goethe-Haus

The Goethe House is the most important Frankfurt memorial to the famous poet Johann Wolfang von Goethe. He was born there in August 1749 and spent his childhood and most of his youth in the four-story house. It was not until 1775 that he moved to Weimar, before which he created his early works here, including the original version of "Faust" and "The Sorrows of Young Werther." After its destruction during World War II, the building was completely reconstructed. Today, visitors can expect to find originally furnished rooms that bring to life the family life of the Goethes and 18th-century Frankfurt. In 2022, the German Romanticism Museum was opened in the immediate vicinity, which shows manuscripts, graphics, paintings and everyday objects in dialogue with the Goethe House.
