Goethe House

Welcome to the Frankfurt Goethe House!


This is where Johann Wolfgang Goethe was born on the 28th of August 1749 "at midday, as the clock was striking twelve", and where he grew up with his sister Cornelia.


Let us take you on a tour – floor by floor – of Goethe's family home.


A short history of the house and its residents can be found in the exhibition on the third floor.


Dear Guests,

right next to the historical Goethe-Haus our latest project, the Deutsches Romantik-Museum – arises. Unfortunately, construction sites always come along with noise and dust.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
