Next stop Weimar. Weimar may be small, but the town is hugely important for Germans. During the 18th and 19th century many important people lived and worked there, among them Goethe, Schiller, Herder, Liszt or Nietzsche. The Bauhaus was established in Weimar, and the Weimar Republic was founded here too. The town was moreover the capital of the duchy of Saxe-Weimar. Today Weimar is probably one of the most enjoyable places in Germany.

Deutsches Nationaltheater (national theatre) and monument of Schiller and Goethe by Ernst Rietschel. Many of their works premiered here, and Goethe was the head of the theater. Later some of Wagners and Liszts works premiered here too, and Richard Strauss was the director of the orchestra. In 1919 the Weimar National Assembly drew up the constitution for the new German republic in the theatre:

That's worth some

Beautiful pictures once again.

I visited Weimar a few years ago and it definitely is a special place and it
seems like the sun is always shining on Weimar since we had pretty much
the same weather as you seemed to have.
