  • Sorry, we didn’t see the house, only Goethe’s garden. Entrance is free - but to be honest, the layout of the garden and the flowers are not very interesting. Not a must-see in Weimar.  more »
  • I was rather underwhelmed with Goethes garden home, but we had a nice stroll in the park, and the visit takes less than 15 minutes, as there is not much to see.  more »

  • Beautiful but closed on Monday.
  • Goethes Gartenhaus ist located in a wide park in the greens. Its a really relaxing place with a lot of trees like a park should be. Sad that they want entry for visiting the small house. Close by is a small river too. Everywhere in this park there are different cultural objects hidden like the Gartenhaus or a Shakespeare statue. I can recommend to spend some time there!
