Close up and intimate – the discreet charm of the indiscreet. Feel the master’s presence, be ignited by the Götterfunken, lose yourself in the Romantic atmosphere of the place where Schiller wrote his ‘Ode an die Freude’ (‘Ode to Joy’).
Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805) stayed from May till September 1785 in the house of farmer Schneider in what was then the village of Gohlis and is now a suburb of Leipzig. The farmhouse was constructed in 1717 on three sides of a courtyard, and Schiller lived in an apartment with a bedchamber on the upper floor.
Visit the house where Schiller stayed in 1785 and experience a remarkable memorial to the early 18th century.
