Goethe House, birthplace of Johann Wolfgang Goethe
Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Germany's most celebrated author, was born in this four-story townhouse in Frankfurt's old town in 1749. A multi-talented bard, Goethe wrote poetry and prose, scientific papers and memoirs, and more than 10,000 letters. Mozart and Beethoven were among the many composers who set his words to music. Filled with period art and antiques, the house has exhibits on Goethe's life in Frankfurt as well as his early works and inspirations. The adjoining museum, housed in a modern glass-fronted building, contains art by German painters of the Romantic period. Goethe House, Grosser Hirschgraben 23 - 25, 60311 Frankfurt, Hesse Germany; +49 69 138 800

As another person said, it is recommended to visit the museum with a tour guide, because there is not so much information. I did not have the opportunity and I feel like I did not learn everything I could, and that I lost many details of that beautiful house.

Mesmrized to see the place where great german philosopher was born and got raised. House is very beautiful but the time i visited it was renovating so i had to use rear entrance.

Love this museum. The house was rebuilt after the war, but the furniture and other objects are the original ones.

very unique but I recommend going there with a tour guide because there are very interesting stories connected to the house and Goethe's life. Without a guide you would just see an old and interesting house without some real value. Anyways its a great place worth seeing.

Must see place in Frankfurt. It is so calm and cozy.
