Essential texts in German literature?

I want to acquire familiarity with famous works of German literature. What works would a typical person growing up in Germany have been exposed to as classics or as exemplary works?

I'm particularly interested in works that would be assigned in a Gymnasium or early university studies, akin to what American students are asked to read in high school or college Lit 101-type classes.
