    Since he is now sitting as a photo object of the Amtshaus. Visiting the same is worthwhile, especially if you also want to know more about the master of the word and its connection to Ilmenau.

    In 1996, the idea of such a monument was taken up again. The design was - mainly because of a lack of similarity with the contemporary portraits (Wikipedia).

    During his time in Weimar, Goethe visited Ilmenau a total of 28 times, as he pursued professional tasks in Ilmenau, among other things because of his work as Mining Minister. Holiday stays in Ilmenau and the Thuringian Forest are also known. The bronze figure was made by the sculptor Klaus Glutting from Ilmenau's twin town Homburg.
