Lectures in Schiller’s summer house

Find out more about Friedrich Schiller’s life and legacy in Jena

Jena, Gartenzinne, Schillers Gartenhaus, Schiller

Learn all about the life and legacy of Friedrich Schiller on the veranda of his summer house.

The years he lived in Jena (1789-1799) were some of the most productive of his life.

It is here that he worked as a historian, poet and philosopher. And it was during this time that his friendship and correspondence with Johann Wolfgang von Goethe flourished. Their collaboration was a significant factor in how Jena, in around 1800, became a centre of philosophical thinking that influenced all of Europe.
