    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe acquired the garden house in the park on the Ilm in 1776.
    In addition to a redesign of the house, he also created an extensive garden with many paths, dwellings 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.

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