The Magical Effects Of Frankfurt Goethe House Germany

December 15, 2015

Even though I had travelled miles across the ocean and spent more than 20-hours inside the flight, still I was not feeling any kind of tiredness. Perhaps, it was the excitement backed by the adrenaline rush that was preventing me from taking a nap!

By the time I checked into the hotel room, it was 2 pm, as per my analog wrist watch. When my smart phone got synced to the mobile network, the time was 10:30 am. Quite obviously, Indian time is 3 hours and 30 minutes ahead of Germany.

After taking a warm shower, I had some coffee, a chocolate pastry, and a chicken sandwich. I wasn’t feeling exhausted, and hence I got myself prepared to step out and begin my exploration. Though I had numbers of options in my list of must visit places, but I decided to start with something that is related to the history of Germany.

In several movies and documentaries, I had heard a lot about the Frankfurt Goethe House Germany. Well, it is the house where the famous Johann Wolfgang von Goethe used to live. He was born in the same house. For those who do not know, Johann Wolfgang has always been counted among the most influential writers in the world. His work in the field of literature is hugely popular.

With the excitement in mind to check out the house of one of the most famous German personalities, I headed towards the Frankfurt Goethe House. It is located at 23 Grober Hirschgraben. Since I was completely new in Frankfurt and it was my first day too, therefore I decided to hire a cab. The hotel where I had stayed also provided cab facility. So, it was not tough for me.

After a ride of almost 30 minutes, I was finally in front of the Goethe House. Well, it was more beautiful and majestic that what I had seen in pictures. The three storey house accompanied with a pent house. The interior was more beautiful, and it made me feel like I was living in the era of late 18th Century. When I came out of the house, I carried many good memories with me.
