The famous German poet, dramatist and philosopher Friedrich Schiller spent the last years of his life in Weimar. He settled in a three-storey house on the Esplanade in 1802. Despite his tormenting tuberculosis, Schiller wrote here his last dramatic works- The Bride of Messina and William Tell. In 1805, the poet died, the house was made a museum, and the street on which the house was, was named after him. Today, tours are organized to the historic house. Guests can walk through the living rooms, see Schiller’s sitting room, kitchen, reception and study with original furniture, utensils, documents, family photos and children's drawings.
