Schiller House

The Schillerhaus Leipzig will be closed to the public from September 12, 2022 to March 31, 2023 due to the conversion work to a new permanent exhibition. The grand opening is on Saturday April 1, 2023.

The “Schillerhaus” is considered as being the oldest well-preserved farmhouse in the region of Leipzig. The house was built as animal stalls with accompanying dwellings in 1717, then transformed and used for summer guests. Friedrich Schiller (1759–1805) lived here from May to September 1785. The then 25-year old poet, who had already become famous due to his play “The Robbers”, spent many happy days here among his circle of friends. Here, Friedrich Schiller wrote his “Ode to Joy” and worked on “Don Carlos”.

In 1841, the Leipzig democrat Robert Blum established the Schiller memorial here. In summer, the idyllic famer’s garden provides a wonderful setting for concerts, readings and theatre performances.
