Romanticist House in Jena

Visit the literature museum dedicated to Early Romanticism in Jena

Romantikerhaus Jena, Literaturmuseum

Jena’s Romanticist House, the former home of the philosopher Johann Gottlieb Fichte, is now a literature museum.

Celebrating Romanticism

The museum covers the famous Romanticists’ meeting in 1799, as well as showcasing Jena’s extraordinary cultural significance in the period around 1800 more generally. The interaction between poetry, philosophy, art and the natural sciences gave rise to a new aesthetic that resonates to this day.

The exhibition presents the intellectual climate of those years (approx. 1785 to 1800), when Early Romanticism was able to thrive as a literary and philosophical movement, and at times even as a shared concept to live by.

Temporary exhibitions and special events complement the permanent exhibition.
