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

Stop number 5 on our tour map from the visitors center, we learned that the Schiller's House in Weimar was built in 1777 but Friedrich Schiller did not acquire the bourgeois house unitl 1802 where he lived with his family until his death in 1805. 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

Out of all the historic homes that one can visit in Weimar, this is by far the best. The layout and descriptions are better than those of the Goethehaus (by a narrow margin), and the audioguide, which here costs €2 extra, is miles better whether in German or English. Perhaps the fact the audioguide consists of a loaned iPod, rather... More
