  Model of Gohlis as it was in 1785
by Nemorino

In one room of the Schiller House there is a model of the village of Gohlis as is was when Schiller stayed here.

It was a quiet farming village then, with just 45 farmhouses and about 450 inhabitants. There was lots of pasture and a large pond. It was about half an hour's walk from Leipzig at that time, and was a popular place for leisurely Sunday walks during the summer months.

During the nineteenth century Leipzig kept on growing, and soon Gohlis was just another district of the big city.
