For fans of Germany’s long history of impressive art and culture, there are many museums and attractions throughout the country that capitalize on that. The Weimar area in particular is home to many of them, and if one is in the area, one should take great care not to miss the Schiller House Museum. This is the final home of Friedrich Schiller who lived here for several years before his death.
The Museum has historical significance in that it’s the site where Schiller drafted his most famous work (William Tell). In addition, it contains many original documents and others artifacts from the area during which Schiller lived and worked, offering visitors a fantastic insight into the culture of working artists of that golden age. The original house was damaged in World War II, but has since been significantly and faithfully restored. The current maintainers of the house are devoted to ensuring its continuous historical accuracy.
