Stadtgeschichtliches Museum Leipzig

Schiller House

Jewel and Muse’s garden

Up close and intimate – the discrete charm of the indiscrete. 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).

Visit the house where Schiller stayed in 1785 and experience a remarkable memorial to the early 18th century.
