    This garden house was Goethe's first own residence in Weimar. In 1886 the house was opened as a memorial. Today you can visit the restored summer house, where you get a glimpse of the dining room, kitchen, living room, study and bedroom.

    You can find the exact opening times and prices here: klassik-stiftung.de/einrichtungen/museen/goethes-gartenhaus

    The “stone of good luck” is located in the garden. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe had this built. It is located next to his summer house in the Park an der Ilm. The monument consists of a cube and a stationary sphere. The solid cube embodies stability and constancy and the sphere on it embodies the inconstant. The work is considered to be one of the first non-figurative monuments in Germany.
    Depending on the park's forest cover and the angle of view, Charlotte was able to see the stone of good luck from her room.
    Thus, this memorial is also referred to as a declaration of love for Charlotte von Stein. (Weimar reading)

    Goethe's garden house was Goethe's first own residence in Weimar in 1776. In old age the house became an important retreat for Goethe.

    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.

    In fine weather, the Ilmpark can be very crowded. Attention with the bicycle because of the pedestrians.

    When Goethe came to Weimar in 1775, he showed great interest in the property for sale on the eastern Ilmhang. The house is possibly a winegrower's house from the 16th century - a time when viticulture still played a major role in Weimar. In its time, the slope was more of an orchard or vegetable growing area. A representation by Georg Melchior Kraus from 1777 shows this condition.
