The significance of Schiller for the German language, German theatre, and German poetry cannot be overestimated and one can really imagine how he lived and worked here. A very well-designed museum; try to go when there are not too many crowds, the small rooms fill up quickly.

After visiting this place I gained a whole new appreciation for this brilliant writer and poet. His short live was nothing short of a struggle.

Of course you have to visit this place and take the time to learn and observe the great history and achievements of Schiller. Make sure you take the time ... don't rush!

So this is how the author of some of the most important plays in German, Die Raeuber, Maria Stuart, and Wallenstein, lived . What impressed me was the man's work ethic: he worked like a maniac and pulled himself up by his bootstraps. His deep love for his wife was also evident.

This house is included in the Weimar card and well worth a visit. There is a lot to see and the rooms are in the main set out as they were in Schiller's day. It is sufficiently interesting for it not to be necessary to know anything of Schiller's work in advance.

We chose to visit just the house in which Schiller lived with his family. The place is very atmospheric. He kept the upper floor just for himself, it contains his study (with some important personal objects) where he wrote and the bed where he died. The family rooms are downstairs. The house contains much less "stuff" than Goethe's house -... More

An amazing memorial to one of Germany's great poets. His work lives on as literature, as the inspiration for one of Beethoven's most famous works and in many opera scores.

Interesting museum for one of the German language's master. Also gives an impression of the time and the way noble people lived in Germany.

One is led into the Schillerhaus via a small exhibition about his life which brings out very clearly how revolutionary he was. This is a good introduction. As in the Goethehaus there is a distinction here between the public rooms and the private ones. One is made aware how difficult it was to exist as a writer from the documents... More
