One is led into the Schillerhaus via a small exhibition about his life which brings out very clearly how revolutionary he was. This is a good introduction. As in the Goethehaus there is a distinction here between the public rooms and the private ones. One is made aware how difficult it was to exist as a writer from the documents... More

What we loved about this place is, that in comparison to Goethe's place Schiller's home gives you a good impression of how 'ordinary' people lived in Weimar at that time. Schiller appears to be very humble Person.

An interesting audio tour gives character and atmosphere to an otherwise minimal exhibition. Most of the rooms are very sparsely furnished, based on guesswork of how Schiller and his family would have lived. Only Schiller's study is true to history.

The same as with Bach, Goethe and others, a must see if you are in the area and follow history. The city alone has so much to share and not to forget Martin Luther and Eisenach, it is close by

The Schiller House is one of my favorite sites in Weimar. However, we arrived to find the house closed for restoration. Be sure to check the Internet if this on your must-see attraction on your visit to Weimar. It is scheduled to re-open at the end of this year. Schillerstrasse is still a lovely shaded shopping street .

Very beautiful street, scenic and well preserved inner-city, definitely worth a visit and a stroll. There are many well preserved houses and buildings on the side and the street itself is lined with intense greenery.

Really a lot to see, you can just go there , buy a ticket and enter, not like Goethe Museum . Since a lot of school classes go there waiting time at the ticket office sometims quite long.

First plus the the paucity of cobblestones. A nice selection of colorful stores and eateries including the 120 flavor icecream place.

The house is well preserved in its initial appearance, with a helpful descriptive brochure to carry through it. Our ThuringerPass did not include the next door changing exhibit, unfortunately
