Via the footbridge, we now cross the ramp of the car tunnel, go slightly to the right on Berliner Straße and soon reach the Großer Hirschgraben (on the left). This is where Johann Wolfgang Goethe was born in 1749 and where he grew up with his parents, Johann Caspar and Catharina Elisabeth, and his sister Cornelia.


After its reconstruction based on historical sources and Goethe's memoirs, every room in the house is furnished as it was back then. Take a tour through the floors and rooms of Goethe’s family home and discover special features, such as the original water pump in the kitchen of Goethe and his mother “Frau Aja”.
