Travel Tips for Weimar

Friedrich Schiller

by hunterV

After my visit to Schiller Museum I understood I have to know more about the ouitstanding activities of this great poet.
He is very much revered in this city for he spent several years here living in the house that houses his museum now.
This portrait is from that museum.
It was painted by Anton Graff in 1786.

Booklovers #2

by egonwegh

I guess on this short visit to Weimar we'll have to satisfy ourselves with pictures of old books ... a huge poster with the spines of antique books that I saw somewhere in the streets, with the castle tower (Schlossturm) reflected in the glass.

National Goethe Museum

by berlingirl84

Here you can visit an exhibition and Goethes residential house.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe lived in this Baroque house for almost fifty years.

In June 1782 Goethe moved into this house at Frauenplan because his summerhouse situated in Ilmpark (check summerhouse tip) had become to small for his collections.

One of the treasures is Goethes original carriage in the remise.

Don´t leave Weimar without seeing the National Goethe Museum.

If you haven´t seen it, you haven´t been to Weimar

Opening hours:

April-September

Tue-Sun: 9am-6pm
Sat: 9am-6pm

October-March

Tue-Sun: 9am-4pm

Closed Monday

Please note that for reasons of conservation, the number of visitors is limited.
Best way is to buy your tickets the day before or 2 hours in advance. You may wait an hour after purchasing your tickets. If that´s the case have a cup of coffee or tea in the Lavazza next to the museum.

Castle Tower

by actualtourist

This clock tower with one little window quite at the top reminded me of the Rapunzel story. I guess this can't be it as the tower where Rapunzel was imprisoned is supposed to have no door, but it was kind of fun to imagine those things.

Anna Amalia Library

by loisl

The Duchess Anna Amalia Library in Weimar, Thuringia, Germany houses a major collection of German literature and historical documents. The library contains:
1,000,000 books
2,000 medieval and early modern manuscripts
600 ancestral registers
10,000 maps
4,000 musical scripts

The research library today has approximately 850,000 volumes with collection emphasis on the German literature. Among its special collections is an important Shakespeare collection of approximately 10,000 volumes, as well as a 16th century Bible connected to Martin Luther.
Part of the collection was burned in a fire on September 2, 2004, which destroyed 30,000 irreplaceable volumes, with another 20,000 severely damaged. However, some 6,000 historical works were saved, including a 1534 Lutheran Bible and a collection of Alexander von Humboldt's papers, by being passed hand-over-hand out of the building.

Anna Amalia Duchess of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach (October 24, 1739–April 10, 1807) was an influential cultural force in Weimar, Germany in the 18th century.
The daughter of Karl I, Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel, she was born at Wolfenbüttel and married Ernest, Duke of Saxe-Weimar in 1756. Ernest died in 1758, leaving her regent for their infant son, Carl August.
During Carl August's protracted minority she administered the affairs of the duchy with notable prudence, strengthening its resources and improving its position in spite of the troubles of the Seven Years' War.
As a patron of the arts and literature, she attracted to Weimar many of the most eminent men in Germany, including Johann Gottfried Herder, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller. She hired Christoph Martin Wieland, a poet and translator of William Shakespeare, to tutor her son. She also established the Duchess Anna Amalia Library.
Anna Amalia was also a notable composer; among her significant works is a Singspiel called Erwin und Elmire (1776), basing her musical on a text by Goethe.
