With a Guide to the Past – Would you like to travel back in time to the period when the famous poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe often visited the town of Aš between 1806 and 1823? Right here, he experienced some unforgettable moments, and you can relive them thanks to our unique Time Trip application.

During your virtual stroll on the historical Goethe Square, you can take a look at the plaque on the building of the Pošta Hotel, where Goethe made several stops. In 1932, a monument with a fountain was unveiled in the heart of the square, designed by the sculptor J. Watzal. On the pedestal of the monument, you'll find reliefs depicting scenes from Goethe's works.

On the northern side of the monument, you'll find the years of Goethe's visits to Aš. This is the only representation of Goethe in the Czech Republic that shows him with a mineral in his hand. During your journey through time, you can also prepare for encounters with historical figures like Gustav Geipel, Konrad Henlein, and even a mythical character known as Huckauf.

Thanks to our mobile Time Trip application, you can experience these historical moments almost as if you were a real tourist in the past. So, what are you waiting for? Step into Goethe's world and his era and embark on an unforgettable adventure in Aš!
