Full description

Discover the greatest German literary figure of the modern era, Jonathan Wolfgang Goethe, on a guided walking tour of the Geothe House and the Old Town Trail. Learn the true story of the writer's life by walking through his birthplace, Frankfurt.

Meet your guide at the Frankfurt Cathedral, where young Goethe witnessed the preparations for the coronation ceremonies of German kings and emperors. Walk the charming Old Town streets and find yourself in Romerberg market square.

Hear all about Geothe's adventures in the city as you make stops at the Gerbermyhle, Wilemer Hours, and the Old Town of Frankfurt-Hochst. Notably, the Statue of Goethe is a special monument to admire.

After taking in his memorial, visit his childhood home where he created many of his impressive early works, including Gotz von Berlichingen, the original version of Faust, and The Sorrows of Young Werther.

The house now works as a museum, paying homage to his life and works, with permanent exhibitions on the life of the entire family. Inside, find treasures such as a rare, 1745, pyramid piano, his famous puppet theatre, and writing room.

Explore the extensive collection of 18th and 19th-century paintings, drawings, and busts that illustrate Goethe's many relationships, acquaintances, and life stages. Listen as your guide accounts a detailed overview of his life's literary, political, and scientific works.
