Founded in 1885 through the will of Johann Wolfgang von Goëthe's last heir, Goethe National Museum is a museum complex that includes the great writer's former residence. You'll tour the rooms where Goëthe and his wife, Christiane, lived, including the study and the library where Goëthe conducted his work. The couple's private art collection is displayed in some of the rooms, and their inspiring garden is still tended for visitors to enjoy. Next to the house, a museum with Goëthe's prolific work includes more than 2,000 drawings penned by the writer.
