Schiller's Garden House

Friedrich Schiller's Garden House was the poet's home around 1800. With its philosophical, poetic, and scientific tradition, it is a literary site symbolic for the Friedrich Schiller University today, providing space for poetry, reflection, research, knowledge transfer and cultural education.
