    The former manor of the von v. Stein family became famous through Goethe's love for Charlotte v. Stein, he used to visit her often. Environment, park and moated castle in every season a feast for the eyes, especially dreamlike in the warmer time, when everything is green and blooming.
    The opening hours of the Museum, Restaurant are from March to October, the seasons of the amateur theater created by Carl v.Stein from May to October.

    The most beautiful garden in Thuringia. All the gardens of the great castles can not get there. The castle offers a museum. After all, Goethe often visited. Bad tongues say that the inhabitants of Grosskochberg are all from Goe ... but that, as I said, is bad slander.

    On 27 August 1949, a Goethe Memorial was inaugurated. After extensive restoration, the castle was reopened to the public in 1975. Until the turn of the castle was a rest home of the Cultural Fund of the GDR. At the beginning of the nineties, an attempt was made to operate the castle as a hotel. In 2011, the castle was closed to the public for restoration work. In April 2012, the castle complex, which was extensively restored for 2 million euros, was ceremoniously reopened. The castle has a restaurant and a castle museum. Its most valuable exhibits are two desks of Goethe (Wikipedia)
