Weimar, Germany - 14th July 2014

By: sannah


Hi Sis, hi Mom!

I am still enjoying my travels with sannah. Today we went by train to Weimar, a small but vivid town in the green heart of Thuringia, Germany.

It is known for its cozy Old Town and as a city of culture.

If I am not mistaken, this tower is part of the old city walls.

Here you can see the Stadtschloss Weimar, one of many palaces in and around town.

Weimar was an intellectual "boomtown" around 1800, mostly due to those two gentlemen Goethe and Schiller. Their monument is standing in front of the Nationaltheater, but has temporarily been made a part of an Open Air Theater during the summer.

The Town Hall of Weimar is only one ...

... of a couple of beautifully restored buildings around the Market Square (Markt).

But there are wonderful buildings outside the Old Town!

This one is located right across the main station. It was already time to leave!

More coming up soon, there was a lot more history to explore that day!

Love, Dille
