German Cultural Heart

Weimar is not only a charming town in central Germany, but it has also been an important cultural centre for almost 3 centuries. Home to artists like Goethe, Schiller, Liszt, Bach and Strauss, the city's legacy is only comparable to the beauty of its idyllic surroundings.

It was between 1758 and 1828, during the regencies of Duchess Anna Amalia and her son Duke Carl August, that the town became the capital of German Enlightenment. In 1919, it saw the founding of the Bauhaus movement by Walter Gropius, and the sessions of the Constitutional Assembly of the so-called Weimar Republic.

It has numerous places that have been listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites, and it was the European Capital of Culture in 1999. Some of the best Weimar hotels are located in the south, particularly near the German National Theatre, Goethe’s house, and the City Palace.

The city is also famous for its ‘Onion Market’, held every year in October. If you’re planning to come to Weimar during the festival, check the hotel availability with enough time in advance.

The local railway station has express lines linking to Frankfurt, Dresden and Berlin. The nearest airports are Erfurt Airport and Leipzig/Halle Airport. Whether you’re looking for cheap accommodation or 5-star hotels, check out the Weimar deals on Booking.com!
