Travel Tips for Weimar
Many of Weimar's houses have some quotation painted at their walls. Here's one that I found particularly wise and interesting:
"Wenn Sie das Leben kennen, geben Sie mir doch bitte seine Anschrift!" (Jules Renard)
--> "If you know life, please give me its address" (Jules Renard)
Alexander Puschkin Statue
Where else better to put a statue of a poet than in the town of Weimar. Weimar celebrates its cultural and artistic identity by placing surprising all who visit. This statue is located on the sidewalk running along the Ilm River park.
The Elephant Hotel
A hotel has stood on this sight since at least 1696. The present Elephant Hotel was completely rebuilt in 1938. Adolf Hitler use to stand on the balcony giving speeches to the crowds in the Market Square below and reviewing troops. A cut out figure now stands in the same position. Numerous other famous people have stayed in Weimar’s most famous hotel including Leo Tolstoy and J. S. Bach.
German National Theater
Visiting this theater you can see first of all the monument to Goethe and Schiller dedicated in 1857 and built by Ernst Rietschel.
The inscription reads, /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/ To the great poets' pair
from the German people
There are always flowers at the foot of the monument.
You can see and hear theater and opera performances at this theater. There are also concerts of the Weimar State Orchestra and Franz Liszt College of Music here.
You can see here another picture of the German National Theater
It's an old GDR postcard. I didn't save money on postcards then thank God!
Thanks, dear GDR publishers, too!.
I enjoyed visiting this theater!
My friends and I were very impressed by both its exterior and the interior. No doubt that visiting this theater is a must for any visitor of Weimar.
