The Schiller House in Leipzig-Gohlis was Friedrich Schiller's summer residence in 1785. It is the oldest preserved farmhouse in the Leipzig region and at the same time Germany's oldest literary memorial.

As one of the branch offices of the Stadtgeschichtliches Museum Leipzig, the museum's exhibition is devoted to the literary works and Leipzig theatrical productions of the famous poet, with around 100 exhibits.
