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.

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

For Americans(it has been my experience that most don't know Schiller) who do not know who Friedrich Schiller was, they probably, at first, wouldn't understand the significance of this museum. First off he was a great author, and, was also good friends with Goethe. The statue in front of the National Theater--the center of Weimar, is of both Goethe and... More

Start your walk down Schillerstrasse at the Theaterplatz where you can examine the Deutsches Nationaltheater and the Bauhaus museum. Travel southeast on Schillerstrasse and select the offerings of your choice which include the Wittumspalais, the Weiman House, the Schiller Museum, and the Ginkgo Museum. When you've had your fill, turn right on Frauentorstrasse and follow it to the end and... More

Like Goethe, you will find a Schillerstrasse in every major German City. In fact, we... More

Being a big fan of the Romantic period, the house of Schiller was high on my list of "mut-see" in Germany. And I was not disappointed! I must confess I knew about the writer much less than about his contemporary Goethe, and this way, visiting his house allowed me to learn a lot more. The provided audioguides (in English and... More

I stumbled on the Schiller Haus looking for the Goethe Haus and decided to pay it a visit instead of wasting time on finding the other. As having no previous knowledge of who was Schiller, I came out much more enlightened and glad I did visit. As the previous post mentions, there is an audioguide you can get at the... More
