For fans of German art and literature or even for those who are just looking for the kinds of attractions that will give them a better insight into the history of the country they’re visiting, the Goethe Museum in Dusseldorf is well worth the visit. Established in memory of the famous poet and writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the Museum, a retrofitted Baroque palace, is certain to delight anyone familiar with the author, as it includes many of his personal effects, artifacts from his life, and even a number of artworks inspired by his writings.
For others, the Museum is centrally located near many other attractions, making it something of a hub that is worthy of attention. The Schloss Jagerhof, one of the most popular destinations in all of Dusseldorf actually houses the Museum, and it is located right next to the famous Hofgarten, which visitors are certain to want to experience for themselves. More than just a tribute, however, Goethe was actually known to live right in this area during a certain period of the 18th century.
