Goethe Museum and Goethe House


Come and visit the Frankfurt Goethe Museum.

It is the only picture gallery exclusively dedicated to the Age of Goethe. Here you will find pictures by important artists of the German-speaking lands, from Late Baroque through Sturm und Drang, Classicism and Romanticism to the Biedermeier period.

This is where Johann Wolfgang Goethe was born on the 28th of August 1749 "at midday, as the clock was striking twelve", and where he grew up with his sister Cornelia.

Let the team of Goethe-Museum take you on a tour – floor by floor – of Goethe's family home.

A short history of the house and its residents can be found in the exhibition on the third floor.
