    Weimar's station is a fair walk outside of the city center, but it has great regional and inter-city links. Even though the state of Thuringia is a little isolated by German standards, being on the super fast ICE line that cuts from Frankfurt and Dusseldorf to Dresden means the city can be accessed quickly from almost anywhere in the country. You can be in Leipzig in 45 minutes, Dresden in about 2 hours, and Frankfurt in less than 3 hours.

    Regional links are very good, at least on the former East German side of the border. Getting to anywhere in Bavaria to the south is not so easy. Regular local trains run to nearby places of interest, like Naumberg with its dramatic cathedral, the communist time-capsule of Chemnitz, medieval Erfurt, and Eisenach with its fabulous Wartburg castle. This makes Weimar a perfect place for exploring the area.

    Weimarcard - won't need it

    We had a Weimarcard for the transportation, but didn't have to use it. Everything is within walking distance and the walk to the Belverdere, partly through the Park am Ilm, is pretty. There is a slight reduction in price at several musea and sights, but it is not worth the prices of the card, unless you visit them all. Besides, we were often charged an additional fee to the stated prices, 'because of the community taxes'.
