Schiller Residence

Friedrich Schiller spent the last three years of his life in this townhouse on the former Weimar Esplanade. Still containing part of the original furnishings, it reflects the style prevalent in Schiller's day. It was here that Schiller wrote his last great dramas such as "The Bride of Messina" and "William Tell". In the 1980s, a museum dedicated to Schiller was built as an annex, providing more space to depict his life, works and impact. The frequently changing exhibitions provide an opportunity to study the writer in greater detail.
