Welcome to the Gotha Research Library

Guided Tours

The Gotha Research Library is part of the architectural ensemble of the castle Friedenstein.
The books of the research library are situated in the historical rooms of the castle. These spaces, which are used as store rooms, are accessible during guided tours to the public.

The library regularly offers tours through the exhibition rooms from April to October every Wednesday at 3 pm. Tours outside these times or guided tours of the collection Perthes are only available by appointment:

An introduction to the use of the research library can be linked to a tour of the historical store rooms.
Admission is free, but a donation towards the restoration of the manuscripts and prints would be greatly appreciated.
