Goethe's Homes, Weimar
Concierge.com's insider take:
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's home from 1782 to 1832 (located at Frauenplan 1) is Weimar's premier tourist attraction. The nobleman's former home is a fine, ochre-painted Baroque mansion filled with antiquities and books. A 15-minute walk away in the Park an der Ilm is Goethe's Gartenhaus. This small cottage was Goethe's first residence in Weimar, and even after he made his fortune, he continued to use it as a modest summer retreat.
