    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe acquired the garden house in Park an der Ilm in 1776.
    In addition to redesigning the house, he also laid out an extensive garden with many paths, resting places and plants.

    Here lived the great German poet for a few years. Unfortunately, there is not much original inventory left. Still worth seeing. The gardens and the park around it alone is worth a visit.

    The entrance fee is quite a hefty 6.50 EUR per person. There is, however, the option of purchasing a "Combi Card Modern" from the Klassik Stiftung Weimar for 15 EUR, which entitles you to one-time entry to the Bauhaus Museum Weimar, Neue Museum Weimar, Haus Am Horn, Haus Hohe Pappeln and Nietzsche Archive. All information can be found here:

    Well ... it was a long way. Everyone has to decide for themselves whether this is worthwhile. But it is nice! Nice garden. Too much Goethe. Otherwise very nice 😎😊

    Goethe has shown a great taste in the selection of his first residence after moving to Weimar: the cottage is idyllically located on the Ilm

    If you follow the Ilmtal Radweg (bicycle path), continuing in the direction of Bad Sulza, you can see the copy of the Goethe summer house there.

    Goethe's garden house in the Park on the Ilm near Weimar was the poet's first residence in Weimar. Here you can view original furnishings from all phases of Goethe's life. The poet's standing desk with a seat and the garden he designed is particularly impressive. Unfortunately, the building and the garden are only partially accessible.

    "Goethe's Garden House". Goethe lived here from 1776 to 1782. The house is surrounded by a wonderful garden and the "stone of good luck" is another highlight.
