The Goethe House in the Große Hirschgraben was the residence of the Goethe family until 1795.
„With the striking of twelve bells," as Johann Wolfgang Goethe reported in "Dichtung und Wahrheit," he was born on August 28, 1749, and spent his youth here.
1795 the family sold the house.
After the war destruction on 22.3.1944 Goethe's parents' house was rebuilt and equipped with the preserved old furnishings.
The Goethe-Haus is typical for the bourgeois living culture in the late baroque and is worth a visit not only because of its famous inhabitant.
