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.

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

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
