Lonely Planet review for Goethes Gartenhaus
The sprawling Park an der Ilm (Ilm Park), just east of the Altstadt, is as inspiring and romantic now as it was when Goethe lived here from 1776 until 1782 in what is now Goethes Gartenhaus. By giving him this simple cottage, Carl August successfully induced Goethe to stay in Weimar.
