Weimar, home of some great German classics
A visit to Weimar is like a journey back in time, to the historic heights of German culture. Not only Goethe and Schiller, Herder and Wieland, but also the musical geniuses of Bach and Listzt were drawn to Weimar. And later, the great designers Gropius and Henry van de Velde. Throughout Weimar, we find evidence of its great history as a city of art and culture. Museums and memorials, like the restored Duchess Anna Amalia Library as well as the Goethe and Schiller Houses, give an insight into an earlier age of great creative output. Also the garden art of those times – Belvedere and Tiefurt – is impressively on display in the park along the river Ilm.
So old and yet so modern – the exhibits in the Bauhaus Museum, dedicated to the design revolution of the 1920’s, will amaze you.
However, you can also follow the trail of darker times in German history, when you visit the former concentration camp at Buchenwald.
A visit to Weimar is like a journey through German cultural history, a city as unique as the great works which were created here! Experience a close encounter with history and feel reenergized when you enjoy an eventful stay with us at the 4-star Dorint Hotel Am Goethepark Weimar!
