Very interesting museum. I'd like to ask the owners to add explanations in English, next to the already existing German ones. This would make things easier for those who understand very little German.
Luca Valorosi
Very good museum, a bit hidden also because of work in progress. Also economic price compared to other museums

There is no English explanations, no audio guide. Everthing is German. If you don't know German, you shouldn't even bother to go there. Beside these it's really simple and small.

When I was there there was a renovation, so I didnt get to see the full museum. From what I've seen, it was actually pretty interesting. Minus points because there were also a few rooms to visit, but there was no explanation at all for what thos.. Read more »

It is a wonderful museum to explore Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and see his famous West-East Divan, which he wrote after being inspired by Persian poet Hafiz.

Very nice museum. The highlight of the walk around the city. It was great to learn about the brightest poets.

One of the worst museum experiences in my life! It's difficult to know where to start. There's precious little about Goethe in this Goethe Museum. Three floors and many rooms full of items that more often than not have absolutely no captio.. Read more »

Not much to see from Goethe, its pretty small. Look at the temporary exhibition being showcased there beforehand on their website to know if you want to visit or not.
At the roadside, very easy to be found.

Lovely, inexpensive outing. The paintings are beautiful, includes fascinating artworks based on the refraction of light. Pram and Wheelchair friendly.

Nice museum in a historic mansion. It was only 4 Euro each and was a great place to step in from the rain and see something for a while, even if you're not very aware of Goethe, as I was not. Lots of interesting historical information, very cool.. Read more »

No English descriptions in museum. Other language options rather than just German would be nice.

Beautiful building with important items to better understand Goethe and his times.

Still worth a look if you don’t understand German! The elevator, spiral staircase and the meeting room on the top floor are stunning. There are contemporary art and artifacts on display. There was a complimentary guide in different languages ne.. Read more »

Lovely building and staff. A number of rooms (locked) and items (in display cases, but still wrapped) unavailable, but more English-language signs than expected. Enjoyed the visit.

If you're interested in Goethe, or simply life in the 1700s, pay this museum a visit! (Best visited with a German speaker if you are English-speaking!) The museum is housed in the Jägerhof Palace (Schloß Jägerhof - reached via t.. Read more »
