Description

This monument is a replica of an original bronze sculpture erected in Weimar, Germany in 1857. It was dedicated to the City of San Francisco by its German citizens in 1901. In 2001 it was renovated and rededicated by the United German-American Societies of San Francisco & Vicinity.

Johann Wolfgang Goethe was a German writer known for his poetry, literary and aesthetic criticism, and treatises on botany, anatomy, and color. Friedrich Schiller was a German poet, philosopher, historian and playwright whose friendship with Goethe was said to be a collaboration "like no other known to literature or art."
