Castle and Park Tiefurt
The castle was initially built as a tenant's house at the end of the 18th century, but when one of the Duke's sons finally inhabited the house, it was converted into a small country castle. He also created an English landscape park, which was gradually extended by Duchess Anna Amalia. Under her supervision, she created the Mozart monument, the temple of the Muses and a tea salon. But the castle was plundered by French troops and only rebuilt by Weimar court gardener Eduard Petzold.
Today, works of art from the collection of Duchess Anna Amalia as well as porcelain from various countries and kitchen utensils of the time are on display in the castle itself.
The 21-hectare park is characterised by meadows and groves of trees up to the banks of the river Ilm.
There are also a number of monuments and park architecture that are always worth exploring.
