Above all, Weimar is known for its history and culture. From the 16th century, it was the capital of the small duchy of Saxe-Weimar many of whose rulers stood out as tolerant, enlightened and progressive sponsors of art. Many great thinkers and artists thus came to Weimar, starting with Goethe and Schiller, Herder and Wieland, then Franz Liszt, Richard Wagner and many more. Large parts of this classical Weimar with its monuments and buildings have now been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Traces of this era are found in numerous palaces, parks, museums, the Duchess-Anna-Amalia Library, the National Theatre and not least in the houses of Goethe, Schiller, Liszt and Nietzsche which still exist. However, the Weimar of the 20th century also awaits your discovery - including the Bauhaus and other important institutions.
