I'm not a fan or Goethe one way or another. I did enjoy the intimate look at his life and this residence's history. It wasn't very expensive either. I think 10€ for my Family of three? I didn't find a lot of things to do in Frankfurt. This, the Zoo and the New Years fireworks by the River were probably... More

My understanding is that most of Frankfurt was demolished by Allied bombs during the second world war, but this house has somehow been restored authentically to its former glory.

Went here after visiting Goethe Haus. There were some really nice paintings and busts on display. Worth visiting if you're already seeing Goethe Haus...wouldn't bother if you weren't already there though, there are better (and much larger) art museums in Frankfurt.

The museum was very hard to find as it's in a little side street. We were greet by rude cashiers who paid no attention to me at the counter. They had that stuck up attitude and aren't fit to work in a place where so many people come to visit. I was rudely told to lock my bags in a... More
